It all began on a Wednesday night, with Miles spewing his guts out.
Poor little man got it bad. His only comfort was to snuggle up with me in bed.
Needless to say, I didn’t have a very good night’s sleep.
He missed out on his Grade 2 sleepover because he just wasn’t well enough to go.
Then by the weekend, Kayla was out for the count.
I was feeling pretty ordinary myself, but I had already made arrangements to run with a friend out in Halls Gap.
When I got there we decided just on 10ish km. Well, it was the slowest 11k I have ever done. Took me 1h27.
I felt so out of form the whole run. Of course, it had to rain in the last km, and thus I got freezing cold.
Once I got home and had a hot shower I still felt utterly ordinary, so decided to skip lunch and just head straight to bed.
At least 3 hours later I was woken up by Tom
You need to get up or you won’t sleep tonight.
I was just so tired. When I took my temperature that explained everything.
So the last week has been me recovering from being sick.
Being sick is no fun. It’s been a while since I have been unwell.
The last time I felt like this (if not worse), was when I had my first DNS.
While I would love to be out running and enjoying this great weather, it’s important for me to get some rest.
So that’s where I am right now. Resting.
Oh and for the record, I did end up sleeping after my huge nap, a whopping 12 hours!
