Week 5 – Fever Pitch

In which I am sick a lot and only Cycle 18k, Run 5k and do not swim.

The story of the week is dealing with a heavy cold and freezing north winds. Conservatively, I have reached 10% of the year elapsed and have cumulatively managed to cycle 369k (3.69%), run 84k (8.4%) and swim 2k (2%). Still a lot to do but am hoping for better weather, longer days and good health in February.

Thursday. Freezing weather from the north + ‘man flu’ kept me indoors drinking tea except for a brief 3k run in the late afternoon.

Friday. Did nothing. My cold was worse – at the mucilagenous stage. Stayed in and kept warm.

Saturday. Still streaming and sneezing. One brief bike trip to get some paint (6k).

Sunday & Monday. Still poorly; nothing doing.

Tuesday. Marginal improvement but wary of being out in our first snowfall of the winter in London. Only a brief trip for shopping (7k).

Wednesday. Carpet laying. To Homebase for some gripper rods (5k), and eased myself back in with a 2k run in the evening (10″51′).
