training break

Ugh. Caught a cold. Started with a sore throat, then stuffy nose and now it’s coughing. Stuff going on down my lungs. Taking a break from training. I ran a HM race with a bad cough and it was terrible. Not being able to breathe properly and having to stop periodically for coughing fits, while asking my lungs to go the work of running–should have known better.

When in doubt, always

obey your body and the thermometer–not your training program.

So for the next few days it’s panadol, cough syrup (this one tastes surprisingly good) and lots of honey & lemon.
