16 days to go and a stonking cold

I always said that when I finally took a day off, I’d get ill. I didn’t expect it to happen after just 24 hours! I woke up this morning full of a cold and feeling terrible!

This afternoon’s run was really tough and very odd. I felt horrible and tired. I ran slowly. Worryingly about two miles in, my legs went very wobbly, just like the tough last couple of miles of a marathon and my quads started to spasm. Not nice at all. I’m clearly not well!

Ok, first suggestion of a marathon from my colleague James is the Marathon du Medoc, aka the Wine Marathon ;-) Have a look here and get an idea of the concept. I’m not quite sure…can I really claim it’s a marathon? It is in terms of distance, but it’s not exactly the serious marathon event that the rest will be is it!
