I have been fighting a cold for the last two weeks which has slowed down my base training. The main sick symptoms only lasted about 24 hours, but there this stupid nagging cough that just won’t go away. I’m trying all sorts of remedies on the net and nothing seems to touch it. So far the best combination has been drinking a ton of orange juice and using good old Fisherman’s Friends when a hack attack shows up.
I went for a run this morning in the -10C weather. I was feeling pretty good untill the hack attack hit me. Its not a nice feeling and I had no medical relief with me, so I had to suffer through the remainder of the 10k run. Training while slightly under the weather can be taxing. I can’t wait for this to leave so I can get back up to full scale training.
