Too soon

I spoke too soon last time. As I am lying on my sofa under a duvet desperately wanting to feel better, I realise how often we take our health for granted. It all hit me back on Wednesday morning when I woke up with a scratchy throat. I went to work and by the afternoon my voice sounded much worse. Woke up on Thursday morning and my throat completely seized up. I couldn't say a word, it was really painful. I decided not to go to work and go and see a doctor. She gave me antibiotics and I can't wait for them to "kick in". I woke up this morning feeling even worse. I have spent a whole day between my bed and the sofa with a fever and sounding very very rough. Ugh!!!

So needless to say the 10 miler that I was meant to race on Sunday will not happen. I am quite disappointed about it, I love that race.

But anyway, my priority right now is to get better as soon as I can and limit the damage done to my training. I just really hope I will wake up tomorrow feeling at least a little bit better so that I can at least enjoy the weekend. Keep your fingers crossed.

Being sick is the biggest bummer EVER! Hopefully those antibiotics kick in soon, but you've been sick for a while, so don't be surprised if it takes a couple of days (I know, not what you want to hear). You can always alternate tylenol and ibuprofen if you can't get control of the fever. Or an ice bath - you're used to that, right? Just kidding. Get better!
