Taper starts

Thursday night is normally Monkey Feet Night and there were plans to go to the track this evening for a very gentle run but this time with running shoes.

I sat at my desk tapping away dully at the keyboard thinking the office was hot and I felt a bead of sweat on my brow...Spring at last I thought until I walked off to the station and the weirdest feeling came over me. Although I was walking in a straight line I felt I was actually traveling at an angle, almost drunk. I fell asleep on the train and then as I walked home I felt quite dizzy and have since then slept for about 1 hour this evening, I have a feeling I am going down with something.

The decision not go to the track was confirmed when my ankle started to hurt which is strange as this is the site of the bruise caused by me tripping over a traffic cone at the Hanover Marathon.

So dizziness, bruised ankle, still a bit miserable about my beloved Arthur and now the tapering has sent me slightly over the edge now. Let's get to the weekend and see how things are but putting it into perspective, the runs are not for training, they are just a run for fun and maintenance....he adds to the end trying to sound positive!

  1. Rest up Jerry, get match fit, enjoy the rest as well, and then you will enjoy the running even more when you get back to it :-) Hugs, just sooo sad about poor little Arthur.
