So sorry to hear you are poorly (again). Are you sure those are menthol crystals and you're not taking illegal substances?? ;)

Haha πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ i'm sure that if they were they would be much more fun!!!πŸ˜‰


Oh dear, this is taking some time to go away. Try and keep active, even if you cannot run.

I saw this on fb a couple of days ago...:

Police in West Berkshire have reported a tanker overturned on the M4 and spilled a load of Vicks Vapour Rub. They're pleased to announce that there will be no congestion in the area for 8 hours. :-)

Thankyou 😊

Ooooh Claire😐...have you got that horrible nasal drip in your throat that keeps you awake at night? I had that a couple of years ago and it took ages to clear up...

I do hope you feel well enough to enjoy Christmas, and you will get back into your running in the New Year all recovered, rested and full of va va voom 😊xxx Take care..

Oh no you poor thing you have had it for ages! Did you go to the doctors? I have tried those crystals before they make your eyes Smart a bit don’t they 😳 I have joined you on the couch 🀧😷 so week 5 run 3 will have to wait 😬 I hope you feel better really soon x

I did go & got given some antibiotics but they dont seem to be helping this time!!!


I hope it clears up soon: get yourself properly well...the running will wait. I know what that dripping down your throats is like: those monstrous dogs of mine flattened me a few months back ( their idea of fun) and broke my nose. Didn't hurt too much but the blood dripping drove me insane for many days.


Sorry to hear that Claire, here I am moaning about not getting out since Saturday, get well soon and I'm sure you will be out running soon.

Hey Claire.. sorry your still suffering, nasty bugs going around at the mo.

I’m sure you will be back at it soon, take a restful break over Christmas and don’t worry about taking a long break, just completed my first run in just over a month due to bad back, took it slow and steady but managed to complete the run...

Have a great Christmas and hope your crystal meth helps you feel better πŸ‘€
