I managed a one-hour weight session on Tuesday and was then struck down with a cold which has had me out of action until today. It's quite disconcerting not to be able to run at this stage of the process. Half of your brain is telling you you MUST run and the other half knows that if you do you can inflict long term damage on your body and immune system.
The sensible side of my brain won out until today when I attempted a leisurely 5 miles at 8 min per mile indoors (it was raining). Now feeling pretty wacked and coughing like an old man but glad I tried. More tomorrow and Sunday I hope. It will be a short week but at least I will have trained for 4 days out of 7.
