Looking back on Thursdays post I *may* have come across as slightly wierd. Do apologise for that, turns out I had a valid excuse as I went to the docs on Friday and got some antibiotics as I have sinusitis for the 5th time in the last 2 years. I should know the signs by now – fatigue, aching body, wanting to sleep all day, miserable…but seeing as those symptoms are all quite similar to what the books tell you to expect during taper that’s what I put it down to. Over the weekend I slept for about 30 hours in total, and woke this morning feeling 75% better – I could’ve done with one more day of lounging, eating and sleeping!
Did 3 miles with Christa from club who is doing VLM and looking like a thoroughbred chomping at the bit – we did it in under 30 minutes which is SOOOPER speedy for me. Also found out that Elaine has had to pull out of VLM as she has a trapped nerve in her back – am gutted for her as she has trained harder than any of us but I’m impressed with her ‘sensibleness’.
Chocolate is a medicine – FACT.
But, I did agree to this so here goes.
13th – 16th April – half a jar of nutella (over the course of the 4 days, melted in the microwave with strawberries dipped in, or with peanut butter in a toatsed sandwich), half a roulade, 2 creme eggs, galaxy chocolate, mint aero lamb. I think that coomes to approximately 12 viceathon miles, erring on the lower side as I was ill.
The sum total of my running has been tonights 3 miles, so for the 1st time in viecathon I am in debt!! by 10.5miles. Bloody good job I’m on antibiotics so haven’t been able to drink!
Just 2 more short runs planned this week – Wednesday and Saturday, so I might have to get my bum in the gym and swim or cycle some extra miles. Oh, and of course I have the 26.2 I’ll be running Sunday…
