Hello all I am back. Been laid up for a while due to yet another chest infection. Thought I had got rid of it after Christmas, felt better started running again and then wham, laid low yet again. Now feeling better so have been taking it easy as a gentle re-introduction to running. I have also signed up for my Triathlon in June so everything is geared towards that. I now cannot afford to get sick in the run up to June 5th. Any suggestions for staying cold/chest infection free would be most gratefully welcomed. I think part of it is because I do almost all of my running early in the morning i.e. before 6am so that I can get it in before I go to work. Also I cycle to work and this is of course early so when cycling now I have taken to wearing a mask so that I can breathe in warmer air as I have read that this can help.
Times are ok, ran a 10k on Monday and that was in 1:06:04 so considering I haven't done that in 4 weeks I was very happy, intervals on Wednesdays and 5k today in 30.34. I am hoping to improve my times closer to the end of May to try and get my 10k as close to an hour as I can and a few sub 30 minute 5ks so that when I tumble off my bike and run the 5k my little legs will actually be able to carry me around the course in Swanley!
Until next time take care, stay well and keep on running!
