The Dreaded Flu

Blogathon post 8/30


Not a title you want to read on a runner's blog and if you are a runner and write it on your own it is even worse! Sadly, that's where I am. I have the flu. Worst of all, it is going into my chest which is a runner's worst enemy.

This is not good for me right now as I have to start my buildup for the Num-Num race now. That means hardcore hill climbing and trails plus enough distance to prepare me for a 10 hour slog in the mountains.

I will keep you up to date, but hopefully I will write a training post real soon.

Enjoy what remains of the weekend and happy running!

Oh no! :( I hope your flu is gone QUICKLY! I feel your pain (well, not as bad AT ALL as the flu) since I fought a sinus infection before/during/after Dirty Kanza. Sending you well wishes and prayers for a fast recovery.

Sorry to read this. I am just getting over a summer cold which I rarely get but it was short. Good luck. Feel better soon.

Nothing worse than hacking up phlegm at the beginning of a run. Get well soon.

There's nothing for it but to rest, take lots of fluids and rest some more. I hope it's a short bout and you're feeling back to your normal self in a little while.
