I was sick

I was sick, but now I'm well again, and there's running to be done.

After an extended non-running period whilst suffering from a bout of nasty seasonal ailments, I went out for the first time in nearly two weeks this morning. It's reassuring that I haven't forgotten how; I managed my fourth fastest time for the short loop. But the 10k is only five weeks away now, and I've got a lot of catching up to do. On the bright side I was perfectly comfortable running in a temperature of about 4C (39F). Well, perhaps that's a slight exaggeration; at least I didn't notice any bits turning blue and dropping off.

So glad to see you are back. I have enjoyed following your progress, as I started running at about the same time. I am also rather out of shape, and reading about your progress inspires me to keep going.

Its hard to avoid a bug this time of year especially if you have children.

Hope you are back in the running and on course to do the Ely 10k.
