Today I am supposed to have started week 9 and the graduate podium is beckoning. However, I have been bitten on my foot by some horrible Blood sucking vampire (I think actually a horsefly) and my allergic response to any kind of bite is to swell up, despite antihistamines. Do I ignore my swelling foot and try to run, possibly failing if it swells more during the run? Or do I wait, possibly a few days given my past experience, getting out of the habit of running? If I wait do I redo week 8 to get back into it? I’ve loved this programme, and have never been any kind of excercise person. I don’t want to stop, and maybe not start again.
