After a tremendous lot of running for the past 90 days (I’ve been surprisingly focused in my training this time round), I’ve been forced to take a break due to an illness.
Feels like flu, probably is. Maybe it’s my body telling me that I’d been running too much too soon. It hurts quite a bit to have it happen so close to the IPPT itself (it’s in a little over two weeks), but in a way it’s quite liberating.
I think I’d been wanting to have this break for so long, but never really knew how I could do it. My training schedule had been planned, and like a tough disciplinary master it forced me through runs I wouldn’t have otherwise.
But with this illness, it’s probably time my legs got some much needed respite.
