I can’t sleep #ManFlu #RunChat

I’ve been trying to sleep for about 4hrs. I’ve been trying to chuck my guts up for about the past 4hrs. I haven’t been this ill in years and I’ve got a 10 mile Cross Country race on Sunday, my virtual 10km to complete and my 400km in 30 day challenge lies in tatters. Worst of all I feel all my hard work of the past few months is quickly unravelling as my preparations for the St. Peter’s Way look in trouble.

This is not going to be a good Valentines Day because I’m not feeling the love. As proof, see the picture of my sad feet below – that’s right I’m in my retired Newton Distance because I’m sick and feel like a old washed up runner not quite ready to accept the end. So go away Manflu and return to me both my mojo and my superhero costume (I know you stole it you bastard!).

    I seriously know how you are feeling.
    A year ago exactly I caught a horrible man flu, I was sick for 2 weeks. I asked the doctor to kill me, I wanted to be put out of my misery.
    No meds help, it’s so hard to man up when a man flu takes over your body.
    After I got over it, it took me about a week to get into my regular self, but I didn’t lose much of my form.
    You’ll be fine, don’t worry.
    Have a nice weekend!
