Not the long weekend I planned

I planned to do some long runs this weekend to have a good start for the new month as well. All of that is now out the window as I’ve got a bad sore throat and my chest is starting to feel it a bit too. So yesterday after work I was off to the doctor and I’m on antibiotics now. I’m really not feeling great and don’t think I’ll be running at all during the next few days. I’ve got a feeling next week Tuesday will be the earliest I’ll be able to run again.

So my long weekend will not be filled with time on the road but rather with time in bed. I’ll just have to live with it. I haven’t been sick for a long time and just hope it’ll pass quickly. I have a half marathon planned for 11 April and will have to wait and see what I feel like next week before I’ll decide if I’m running it or not. I’m supposed to run a 50km on 17 April but don’t want to think about that yet.

On the bright side, we have a new family member! No, no baby in the house, just this fellow.

Long story short, we got him from a lady living in a flat that couldn’t take care of him. She got him from someone who left the country and so he ended up with us. At least the two of us can get to know each other better over the weekend.

Have a happy Easter everyone!

Hi johann,
It's nice the photo of the new family member! It was fun to look at:) I hope that you feel better soon! I think you made the right choice to not run when you are not feeling well!! Although you are on antibiotics now, I hope that you have a nice Easter weekend.
