My marathon training was going splendidly then i started to feel achy and hot and low and behold the weekend it snowed in London i developed full blown flu when even your hair and nails hurt.I was better after about 5 days but it was still bitter cold and i set off to do a run but I got a mile up the road and I just could not go on .I started shivering and felt so exhausted I went home and slept most of the day.
Now 10 days later I am still struggling,going to work is finishing me off I am so fatigued running just drains me if I get out of the door.I have a cole sore the size of a cauliflower on my lips and I look like C**P.....there are 10 weeks to go and i could cry!!!!!!! i got to 13 miles before all this , but that now looks like a complete waste of time. How am I going to make the milege back up.And to top it all still have sniffles and a head cold.I am a nurse so I mix with germs all day which dont help.
Somebody please give me hope that I can get back to it in time !!!
