The sad (but unfortunately true) fact is, RR, that the fitter you get... the nearer you are to being injured or becoming ill. That's running, I'm afraid. There's a very fine line between being on top of your game and "going over the edge". Sometimes it's possible to "balance" on that knife-edge; but the trick is in being able to recognise when you're there and adjust your running (maybe back-off a little?) accordingly.roadrunner84 said:I was running 5 or 6 days a week until I woke up with a stinking cold AGAIN Why is it that happens as soon as I'm getting somewhere??

Maybe it's about time I got my own I was supposed to have run 10 miles yesterday and am disappointed not to have done so... but then aside from my cold, I did lock myself out of my house, too, which meant waiting until my sister was home with a spare key at 8pm... oh dear :embarrassed: The odds were stacked against me that day! Thanks for the advice, pedestrian!
