Wooohooo, one more run to go!!!

I finally managed to get out of the door this morning for week 9 run 2. It was tough, I wasn't feeling that great, despite 10 hours sleep last night. Because I was so sleepy in the last 24 hours, I decided to take my temperature before I left and, who'd have guessed, I had a fever :-( I really didn't want to postpone my run, so I popped a couple of paracetomol, had a drink of water, waited 15 minutes for temp to drop below 38C and went for my run (slow jog more like). Now, I know I shouldn't do that, and I probably wouldn't again, but I survived. I did it. I'm nearly a graduate :-) Do I really have to have a rest day tomorrow? :-(

  • Yes, you absolutely must have a rest day tomorrow. If you're running a fever, then pushing it two days running could set you back a lot longer. Can understand your enthusiasm to graduate, but there's more to running than C25K, you know! It's only the beginning and you don't want to sabotage your health.

    Good luck for Friday and enjoy it without running a fever!

  • I took your advice and rested :-)

  • Sorry you are feeling poorly... but good on you for getting out there and running! As a brand-new graduate, I will be waiting by the proverbial door to welcome you to the clubhouse! :-D

  • thanks, I finally made it yesterday!

  • hi vixiej you took a real risk running with a fever-but we do it anyway, don't we? Well done on completing the course. You are now a Graduate, and like ironMatt we look forward to seeing the banner against your name. No running until Monday-get the fever sorted first, that's number one priority, your health. Then you will be fit to tackle 5+. Congratulations and happy running :-)

  • yes, I won't do it again, it was daft and knocked me out totally

  • Wines a chilling and getting ready to celebrate!!! :-) I hope you feel better for your grad run!!!! :-)
