Hello Clanettes! Normal blog service has been resumed - its all about meeee!
The first half of the week I was still under the blanket of virus and at the start of week 3 I was beginning to wonder if I would ever feel well again. The Dr prescribed me some antibiotics and within 24 hrs I was well on the mend. I feel great this weekend! What a relief!
Monday, Tues, Weds, Thursday,
No exercise on Friday, but I was lucky enough to have some of my friends over on Friday night. Paul was away for his works Christmas Do, so my friends and I all contributed to a meal and cracked open lots of wine and some cherry brandy.
On Saturday Emma and I went out on our bikes and blew the cobwebs away. I really enjoyed the ride and we escaped the worst of the rain! I felt really strong and it gave me hope that a run the following day wouldn't kill me.
This morning I dragged myself to the gym - I DID NOT WANT TO GO, but after two particularly indulgent days I didn't really want the extra cals hanging around! I ran 5k on the treadmill, in 33mins and 15secs. I was really frustrated over the 15 seconds but I just didn't have anything faster in me. But on the flip side, I guess after 3 weeks I did well to get into 33 mins. After my run, I swam 20 lengths and came home feeling really good about myself.
