All my resolutions to start to do the 10K bridge this year were broken by mid- January. By the end of the month, Mum had passed away leaving Dad in an emotional heap and as I ran round in circles like a headless chicken, I did try to keep on running 3 x a week. Then about a fortnight ago I got a sudden temperature, felt like a human excrement but no other symptoms. This was quickly followed by another bout of similar sickness. Needless to say I am very run down. Didn't want to go public about all this, but maybe I should! A bit of therapy and encouragement from you lot can only do me good. Ran this morning like death warmed up, but I did it. As Laura says, a bad run is better than no run at all. Looking forward to your encouraging comments, Delia PS It is spring here at last!
