After having study days in Bristol two days in a row (driving there from Wales every day) I donned my trainers to do the last run of Week 6.
Five minutes in and EVERYTHING hurt, my knees, thighs, calves, hamstrings; everything was screaming at me to slow down to a walk, now I've never EVER walked halfway through a run, but for some reason at precisely 6m36secs I went to a brisk walk and did my own intervals (running for the last five minutes) but it wasn't fun.
I went home feeling rather dejected with the old "your a fool if you think your a runner internal monologue" and settled down for the Evening feeling very sorry for myself. The following morning, bam, full head cold complete with aching joints and soaring temperature. Seems like my body was trying to tell me something on run day and by the time I headed out my immune system had already taken a bashing.
Any tips on how to run through a cold? This is the third day now since my failed attempt and I would really like to go again today as it's showing no signs of easing up.
