Cold - to run or not?

Been sneezing since Friday so wondered whether to run today or not. I had been thinking about doing the Beyond 5k facebook run in memory of grandparents. Got up this morning and decided it was wirth a go.

So glad I did. I saw a red Kite, 4 deer, lots of rabbits and squirrels and covered just over 5 miles (8.5k) in an hour. Lots of advice saying not to run and others that if it is a head cold then it's ok but anything else don't. My calf is behaving so I want to try to keep building on it.

Good luck to our Marathon runners today in Manchester and Plymouth and hope you all have great runs today.

  • Sounds like a lovely run GF. So glad things are continuing to improve. You sound like you've well and truly left the IC behind :) :)

  • Thanks EM definitely improving. Physio warned I have to keep stretching and exercising as the temptation is to forget about the stretches once things feel better

  • Great start to the day! Sounds lovely. Hoping to do that run myself later too for grandparents. Hope your sneezes don't develop into full man flu!
