I MISS MY ENDORPHINS

I have not exercised since my race on Sunday. Don’t worry I am not taking this ‘rest after racing’ thing too far, unfortunately I am ill.

I had a bit of a temperature on Sunday evening, and despite a very early night, still felt pretty rotten on Monday. Tuesday I was feeling a little worse but not great and I decided that extra sleep would be better for me than running my 2 miles that morning. On Wednesday I had a work breakfast meeting at 8.30- I was sent home at 9.15 and spent the day drinking tea wrapped up on the sofa (and doing about 5 loads of laundry!)  so no running for me on weds and no weights session with Steve. Thursday I swapped running for sleep again and made it into work. I may have had some ‘medicinal’ drinks and shots last night and so there was never going to be any running this morning!
I am fed up with my sore throat, cold and generally being bunged up and can’t wait to get outside and run. It’s pretty miserable being ill, and I think my lack of endorphins is making me feel even more miserable. I hope that by taking it (very) easy this week that I will be able to get back to full training next week.

My desk looks like a pharmacy!

One of my favourite quotes from one of my favourite films;

‘Exercise gives you endorphins, endorphins make you happy and happy people don’t just shoot their husbands, they just don’t’.
