Got some weird head cold / sinus thing. Has totally flattened me since last Friday. And things were going okish too.
Had a few good spins on the road. Tried to keep the pace high and stay on top of the gears. The times were nothing to write home about, but it was a good start. I also managed a couple of hours on the mountain bike (wheels holding up nicely - could turn out to be the bargain of the year!) I'd not started on the Turbo trainer, but was planning on doing a bit this week.
Then Aidan starting coughing...a lot. After about 3 days I started to get a head cold. Tied in with 4 nights on the trot with a combined total of 15 hours sleep, things went from bad to worse. I got the first symptoms last Thursday afternoon, but cycled into work on Friday as I was only hurting above the neck, but by Saturday/Sunday was in bits. I had to just go to bed early. But despite getting about 8 hours sleep over the past 2 nights I wake up feeling like I've not slept at all.
I don't think I can do much more than put the feet up and take it easy (well as much as you can with 2 kids). I won't be stressing about not hitting my training plan that's for sure :)
