Literally. Picked up some sort of stomach bug or food poisoning on Monday and couldn’t shake it until Friday.
With a trip to Dublin for a conference on Weds-Sat, I’d booked a later flight home on Saturday so I could do a tourist parkrun but it didn’t look like that was going to happen as I spent seemingly more time shivering on the toilet than anything for Mon-Weds and then started picking up a little but a tough and otherwise grim week running wise.
I did manage to feel human on Friday and on Saturday went to do Waterstown parkrun and despite feeling a little weak I actually finished first!
It’s a tough little course looping around and with some little climbs to make you work but 17:55 isn’t too bad and I liked that they had a lead bike! Pretty pleasing that I have now finished 1st at a parkrun 5 times in the last 7 I’ve run!
