really happy this morning – after a disappointing few days, I actually went for a run!

Sunday was supposed to be the day for a 29km run into Fremantle, with a rest day Monday and recovery run today. Unfortunately a stomach bug decided to work its way through our household, resulting in me throwing up throughout Saturday night, spending a day in bed on Sunday, and only doing a half day at the office yesterday.

I was really annoyed, and also surprised to find how disappointed I was that I couldn’t do the run! On the plus side, I felt much better this morning, and the forced break might even stand me in good stead for the half marathon this coming weekend.

While it’s not ideal for this to have happened 1 week before the Joondalup half-marathon, and 5 weeks before the Perth marathon, I’ve still got one really long run (32km) to go, and the training I’ve put in over the past few months should see me through.
