Well, as some of you will have seen I was on holiday for a week last week and didnt get any running done.
On Tuesday I went to the running club and did the 9.something miles and really really struggled. I thought I was just out of shape after a week off but it looks like my body was trying to tell me something.
I went out on Wednesday and took it easy and did a two mile run but still felt like a bus had run over my legs, really painful but I put it down to running the 9 miles the day before.
Yesterday my body stopped making hints and hit me full wack with every muscle in my body aching, headaches and a sore throat!

Today I am meant to be doing a 9 hour drive down to Dover (leaving Scotland at 5pm) and getting the ferry to France for a competition I am taking part in (non running but still racing!). Im sitting hear with a lemsip (which I was annoyed to find they have put Aspartame in!!!) and some Nurofen trying to ease the pain.

Why couldnt it have waited until I came back from France! Grrrr......

Aw no! Arse biscuits!!!

Drinks lots of pure OJ (not from concentrate) and fight through... take the odd paracetamol here and there, and you should be fine. I find lemsip fairly pointless personally, it doesn't really do anything a paracetamol/aspirin doesn't and it tastes bloody awful!!!

Lol, I really should think about what I post - sounds like you guys aren't au fait with random sayings such as 'arse biscuits', 'cool beans', 'sweet on toast'...

...just me? I thought so... :embarrassed:

Thanks all, ye Im still going. I dont have a choice, me and a mate are sharing the driving to get down south and we are using my car.
Ive come home from work early and just chilling just now, the nurofen is working well and the lemsip is tasting horrible!
Going to buy a bottle of OJ and drink it on my way.

The racing is Parakart or Kite Buggy racing. Its the European Championships and Im on the Scottish team, should be amazing with 80 kites and buggies all racing round the same course.

Will see you all in a week, unless I manage to get a wi-fi signal from the beach :)

Sounds awesome. I hope you're able to enjoy yourself! I'm driving up from Herefordshire to the Scottish borders to visit family; be much easier if we could just swap places like the agents from the Matrix :cool:
