Wk8 – Down but not out

I’ve been a bit quiet on here in the last few days for a few reasons:

I’ve got a bad cold.
I’ve been sleeping LOTS to try to get over it.
I’ve not been training to try and help me get over it.

I got a nice comment on my blog from Dave tonight:

You still alive ? we are all very concerned @noblog.com

Get well soon

I have been thinking about posting:

1. Stages/days of my cold, my symptoms: sniffles, sneezes, sweats, sore head, sore throat, coughing, etc, medication, sleep and how I felt, but I figured that’d be pretty boring and I’d rather think about getting better than complaining. 😉

2. How to get over a cold. I’ve already written something about that last week. For me, it’s sleep, rest, paracetamol, decongestant (cold/flu pills). Otravine has been a bit if a life saver to clear my nose too.

3. And here’s one I’ll write about now: my new shorts:

I got a nice wee Valentines present, a cool pair of Nike shorts. They don’t have any pockets like my other Nike tempo shorts but they’re really nice. Can’t wait to wear them. 🙂

Last thing from me tonight, if you have a subject you’d like me to blog about, let me know and I’ll see what I can do x x 🙂

After 6 days I’m getting there, I won’t go into the gory details, but I’m nearly there. I’m taking this week really easy, I’ll see how I feel and take it easy to get back to training.

    Very nice shorts, but I am a shoe man myself, my current ones Nike Free 3.0 are so very nice and faster than I will ever be, they (no I will stop before I get too excited)
    The long rest will do you more good than just recovering from your cold (daren’t say bird flu) , it will allow the training effect on your muscles to consolidate. you will be back running stronger and more motivated (if that’s possible ) real soon.
    Best Wishes Dave

      I was thinking that too Dave, (that I’d come back stronger and should take the time to recover properly)… hence taking this week easy with no real plans. 😀

      I’ll see how spin goes tonight as to how ready I am to get back into it (or not). I’ve got plenty of time to prepare anyway. 🙂
