As is always the way, as soon as I make a plan and commit it to virtual paper something comes along to kick sand in my face. In this case it was the cold which I managed to hold off throughout the Christmas period.
Multiple cold and flu capsules and enough Vitamin C to shock a fair sized elephant appears to have worked so far.
With a return to the day job, poor sleep and the aforementioned cold, training has been lacking this week. I did get out for a 3.5 mile run Friday but my legs and body grumped enough afterwards to make me question whether the run was not 5 times that amount. A rest of sorts over the last two days (if two days looking after dash whilst Kate is at work can be considered any form of rest) should see me right for a restart tomorrow.
