Ran on Friday evening in cold and rain. Felt fine. Noticed sore throat Saturday. Ran 17km Sunday - 10 of which was in the Jetty to Jetty race in Redclif. Throat was a little sore, but I did not feel particularly unwell.
Sunday after the race I was really tired, and the throat got worse. Headache, slight aches and pains and the damn throat has turned in to a proper flu like thing. Monday and Tuesday off.
This is incredibly frustrating as I have a lot of work to do as well as want seamless trouble free training in the lead up to Melbourne Marathon. I should be happy its happened now and not on the day of the race. Trying to see the good side of it .. Like I am getting a bit of physical rest too.
