In sickness and in need of health

I’ve been under the weather for a couple of weeks now and it’s really getting frustrating. I’m generally quite resilient when it comes to illness, but this winter has taken its toll and when spring arrived with a welcome boost in temperature a few weeks back I was delighted. All too soon it was back to being wet and cold again, though, and that’s coincided with me getting this cold.

I’m taking my vitamins and eating about as healthy as I can do, but this thing isn’t shifting fast enough for my liking. I have a cycling event in one month’s time and I’m behind on my training already. I’ve managed to keep the pace up with my Tough Mudder strength training, as that doesn’t really require me to be able to breathe efficiently.

Still, if this cold hasn’t cleared by the end of the week I’m going to far enough behind with my fitness on the bike that it’ll make that first event of the year even more daunting than it already is.
