As you will have read I had two runs in quick succession this weekend and this is the first time I have achieved this.
Monday I felt fine (physically) and was surprised that I didn’t ache as much as I expected.
Monday mentally however was a very dark day as my mum had her operation and I spent the day brooding and worrying.
I had planned to run Tuesday but that don’t happen as I had an upset stomach and dizzy spells, so I decided to stay off. Have some time to sort myself out and regroup.
I returned to work today feeling much better but conscious of a neck/head pain I have had for about 10 days. One of my colleagues annoyed me by convincing me I may have glandular fever but by then I had already decided to get it checked out (especially as I wasn’t well yesterday). Turns out I have pulled a nerve in my neck. 😦
I didn’t ask if I should stop running but to be honest I have had the pain all the way through the runs I went on last week and I don’t believe it got any worse for doing them.
I am taking this however as signs of just generally being under the weather especially with all that has happened. This ultimately mean I have not been running since Sunday.
It’s a shame as the weather is glorious here today and although a touch fresh, it’s much milder than it has been of late.
Tomorrow is my last chance of getting a run in before next week as I am heading down to Devon to see my parents on Friday.
I’ll see how I feel tomorrow (I bet you it will rain) and see if I can squeeze in one elusive run this week!
