Definitely should have stayed in bed! I wasn't expecting to be so completely annihilated : couldn't breathe, couldn't run, couldn't stop coughing and stomach cramps the entire time. This bug is taking its toll nearly 2 weeks later; nevertheless, after having tried out on Thursday, I really thought today might be better. Instead I came home with a blazing headache and stomach cramps. I showered and went to bed for a couple of hours. No idea how I'll tackle this coming week; just wait and see, I suppose, how I feel from one day to the next.
I must have looked nearly as bad as I felt because another runner insisted I sit down and brought me a glass of water, asked if I'd like a cup of tea at the Briars and then offered to drive me home! The water was welcome; couldn't stomach tea and drove home without crashing! The same runner has since phoned to see how I am......a very kind Parkrunner indeed!
Getting sick is such a pain!
