So - here I am on the sunniest and warmest day for ages, sat indoors instead of making my planned assault on 5K (again). Having managed about 4 runs between lurgy and snow hitting earlier in January, I have managed only one between snow melting and.......New Lurgy. This time I've started coughing on day 1 AND got a temperature (not to mention achy legs, general lethargy etc) so I think I'm better off indoors counting the birds (Great British Bird Watch today for those interested). I just hope this one doesn't last as long as previous lurgy, which had me off running for 3 weeks.
I guess sometimes life just isn't fair - after all, I've lost all this weight and eat a TON of fruit each day, new healthy lifestyle, had a flu jab - and somehow every virus in Southern England thinks I'm a good target. Roll on spring!
PS for those who remember the retail therapy - I did wear New Top on that one run. Very comfy it was too! Just hope I don't have to resort to more online shopping to keep convincing myself I'm still a runner this time
