I’m usually lucky enough to dodge the worst that flu season has to offer, but unfortunately not this year. Whatever has been circulating amongst the population latched on to me a couple of weeks ago and launched an all out assault against my body. My immune system, often a strong point, fought bravely for days to stem the tide of germs but eventually succumbed to the pressure. It’s been a rough couple of weeks, with little in the way of activity and lots of comfort food (yum but oh so bad!) to nurse me through the worst of it.
I’m starting to emerge from the worst of it, but am now faced with the prospect of having to work just that little bit harder to get myself back to where I was before the germs declared war.
Us runners live for days like these though.
