My body is conspiring against me

Had a cold last week - it didn’t take too much out of me and I ran through it. No problems, made sure I drank plenty before and after.

Sunday - cold pretty much totally gone (just the odd sniffle) - got back from walking the dogs and was suddenly inordinately tired. Didn’t even trust myself to knit tired. Tried to have a nap on the sofa; it didn’t happen.

Yesterday - was just starting to wander around the house collecting my running stuff together, and the next thing I knew? Migraine. Full on, I’m going to throw up, migraine. Another afternoon spent on the sofa while I waited till my daughter and her OH got back from their weekend away and could fetch Taylor Beagle.

Feeling a bit wrung out this morning. I’m not planning on running today. If it happens, it happens.

It might be worth having a completed break from running apparently it is advised to have a break of about a week every so often so the body can recharge so when you come back you are raring to go again.

Oh dear, sorry to hear you're not up to the mark 🙁

Rest up a bit. Migraine seems to strike randomly and lays you out completely so go steady. You'll soon be back out with the dog 🙂👍🏃‍♀️✔️

My usual triggers are flashing lights and high contrast situations/images (and I used to get one once a month before I was menopausal 😒) so this one really did come at me from nowhere.

Took the two remaining dogs for a slow stroll along the river where I normally run. The foster Terrier hadn’t walked there before so he’s now all worn out from investigating lots of lovely new smells, and I’m more than ready for a sit down. 😴

Fitting in a run tomorrow would be doable, but it will actually be simpler to run on Thursday, at which point it will be a week since I last ran anyway 😁

Migraines are such a killer, and I think leave you wrung out even when they've gone. Rest up and rehydrate, and hope you feel better soon.

I think I’m all better now, and it’s been a week since I last ran. Husband is home - his one day off a week - so I’m going to walk the dogs then go for a run armed with an audio book. Hopefully the gremlins won’t get me.

Awwww, so sorry you’re feeling under the weather...just get back to it when you’re ready, any sooner & you won’t be at your best x

I think I’m good. I’m going to try for a run today while my husband is at home, that way I won’t be worrying about the foster dog (he’s started getting a bit worried when I go out now).
