Monday night and I kind of wasn’t in the mood for a run, but as usual, I was glad I went. I went to the Drs after work. My cold has been hanging around for a fortnight now… and although I usually let these things fizzle out, with the marathon looming in under two weeks I think it needs a bit of a helping hand to get on its way.
I phoned my brother (GP) on Sunday night for a chat and he said that if someone came into him with a cold that they’d had for two weeks and they were doing a marathon in two weeks, he’d definately prescribe them an anti biotic. So I went to my GP. I’ve now got a week’s supply of penicillin. 😀
Fingers crossed it’s just what I need to clear up my nose/throat. I can still run, but I’m not at my peak…so this will hopefully help me get back to normal.
Anyway… the 4 mile run for Monday night was around the Clyde Bridges. Nice and flat. We decided we’d do the usual back to front for the first time ever. It’s a good way to mix things up and change the routine a bit.
The weather was pleasant, and not too cold. I think its turning for the worst later this week though…. rain and lots of it. 😦
