I’ve been battling a cough and cold this week, and after an unexpectadly heavy New Years Eve-eve night out skipped my NYE run. I also ducked out of a 10K off-road race I was planning to do on New Years Day as it was a cold day and I didn’t want to make my cough worse.
Today it seemed to have settled down so I attempted my four mile tempo run. Unfortunately it’s a wet and miserable day, with a bit of a breeze, and as suspected I struggled to hang on to anything near my true LT pace of around 6:30 min/mi. After I had completed the 3.2 mile out and back along the section of the Severn that isn’t flooded I decided to call it quits.
Still, it’s all miles in the bank and I seem ok after the run so hopefully I’m on the road to fitness again and by next week I can be back on track!
