It's been over two weeks since my last entry where the Gold Coast half went reasonably well to plan. Unfortunately since then my virus has again descended putting me out of any sort of proper training. At first I enjoyed the recovery from the half but after a week, I had had enough and even now I find myself still coughing up and blowing out crap. Let's hope it ends soon.
Not a bad first week but quite sick from Sunday 10th onwards again.

Tue 5th: 11km easy grass run
Wed 6th: 15km Narrabeen Lake - felt pretty good actually
Thur 7th: 9km not that great. Fell apart. Sick again
Fri 8th: AM: 6km slow, PM: 12km with 3 sets of 6min/3min fartlek (1min between each) 3:30 pace for the total 33mins.
