So, Mr W reported a niggling throat on Friday, woke up with a full blown cold on Saturday, struggled through a long day playing with a band, and then spent all of Sunday in bed. At this stage, ministering to the invalid, I thought I'd escaped. Ha, no. Tuesday I had a throat, Wednesday a full blown cold, and Thursday I spent my precious morning off work in bed.
Why am I frustrated? Last big race of the season, it's my last chance to get under the hour for 3.8k in 2012. Firstly I don't know if I'm going to be well enough to race, secondly, I know that I won't be 100% firing on all cylinders even if I am, as I've missed my training this week (on top of less than ideal training in the run up). Just don't know what I want to do. Do I want to race even if I'm not better just to get 1:04ish? Will it give me a relapse of my cold which I really don't want for the busiest work week of the year?
To end on a positive note, I ended up buying one of the pictures from my tri at the Festival of Sport. I just love this picture (even if I am clutching at the brakes!).
