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!


Thanks Lou. Good luck with your run


Just did it. Was lovely. Thought about them all the way round. Felt quite emotional actually. I love running. :)
