Feeling sorry for myself😷

I haven't been for a run for 10 days now. Was staying with my dad for a week and couldn't go out and leave him and now I'm home but have got a miserable cold and painful sinuses! Had planned to do parkrun this morning but woke up feeling dreadful. So I guess it'll be another few days before I can get out. Just a bit frustrating knowing that it's going to be more difficult when I do get out. Also have signed up for a 10k in June so aware that I need to start training sometime!

  • I'm with you. Struggled with 5k run on Tuesday with achey legs then cold came out overnight. Thought my cold would have improved for parkrun today but sadly not. My back and legs don't ache anymore but my sinuses are stuffed. May have to give it another day or two.

  • There's room on the couch for you, and H too. Grab a cuppa and have one of my Club biscuits xxx

  • Sounds good! xx

  • Don't get too comfy, we've got races to run remember!

  • Oh I know curly! But just feel so miserable that I can't imagine running again! (Know I will though) xx

  • I know that feeling I have Plantar Fasciitis, and it's very painful. Hard to imagine it getting better. I know it will though, this is not my first injury. I've had 2 weeks off, my race is in three weeks...I have the option to change to 5 KM on the day, I could probably walk that. I want my medal, it's purple!

  • Oh no! That must be painful. Hope you recover by then xx

  • Thank you, it's getting better, hope you get back out there again too soon xxx
