Mon 28th Jan - Scheduled Rest Day. Start of a head cold, tried to avert it with hot whiskey's on monday night (Jameson 12 year old - went down too well), took too many and ended up tuesday morning (4 a.m.) with a worse cold and a hangover. Tue 29th Jan -Unscheduled rest day. Felt absolutely miserable at work. Took more conventional medicine on tuesday night - slept well. Wed 30th Jan -2nd Unscheduled Rest Day and stayed out of work to knock this thing on the head. I wonder is this the central governor's way of avoiding this mornings 8 x 2 min hill repetitions. Next week sees the last of these with 5 x 2 min reps (cut-back week). Then it's into the 400m interval stage for the next 4 weeks in preparation for my programmed 5k race/time trial on the 8th/9th March (I can't find a 5k race nearby and I don't like the idea of a time trial - the measurement could be out and if I get under 19:20 I can hardly call it a PB) Hopefully I will get out tomorrow for an easy run.
