So the night before last it's dark by the time the kiddies are in bed, the traffic is busy, and I haven't trained in nearly a week. So I decide to go for a run, and do a little 3 mile jaunt. With a head-cold starting.
Not a good move.
Two days later, cold is in full swing, and legs are killing me. I have come to two important conclusions:
1. Train when you're well, not when you have incipient Man Flu.
2. Running fit is not the same as cycling fit.
On the other hand, I'm starting to feel more ready for this, and I'll be putting up a few more retro-blog posts over the next few days. Remember the sponsorship site: http://justgiving.com/shanemckee - thanks!
We've done it again! This time we biked from Petra in Jordan up to Nazareth in Israel, to raise money for the Nazareth Hospital CT Scanner appeal. Nazareth is the largest Arab town in Israel, but they still don't have a dedicated Stroke Unit to cope with this devastating condition and major cause of death. Click here to find out more, and please help this fantastic cause. Thanks!
