I’ve been pretty ill for the last week and it’s really frustrating. Although the big swim is done, I still want to complete the 1,000kms challenge and to do that I need to be exercising. On top of that I’d signed up for a triathlon for next weekend to keep me motivated and give me something to aim for after the swim.
Now I’m going to have to cancel the triathlon and I haven’t done any proper exercise since Windermere.
I’m pretty sure that the illness isn’t related to the swim (ie it’s not something I drank), but the timing is possibly linked – after the swim while I was at my most physically run-down it’s not surprising that I’ve picked up a bug and caught it more severely that perhaps I would normally have done.
The only thing to do is to wait it out and make sure I’m better before I start again, but still… GRRR!
