So my training was going great! I was mixing it up at the gym and i was sailing along well.
Saturday went off to a Vineyard to escape the city and went for a lovely run in the fresh air but only did 4km rather than my planned 12.1km but i wasn't worried. Sunday night i was feeling terrible but put that down to wine... got up monday and went for run again and it was lovely nice and slow and easy.
Then Monday night i felt a cold coming...Tuesday I felt awful and yesterday feel even worse. So I have now missed 2X12.1Km and i don't think going for a run with a cough and blocked nose is such a good idea and have even missed the gym.
So I have decided not to enter the HM - My longest run was 27th June for 16km and with the pollution levels been so high it not good to run outside. Plus having this sinking cold the first within a year So I have decided not to enter the HM in August. It makes me sad but its a tough route and i wanted to be 100% ready. I am tempted to enter the 15km instead, still tough route as it takes on the hill but maybe more doable.
