Two weeks, two weeks this has been going on and I’m fed up now. Jogblog just reminded me that it’s the Crisis Square Mile Run next week!! First it was the throat, which got so bad I couldn’t sleep or eat, then my whole neck and head hurt and I had to do that weird thing were you turn the whole of your upper body to look around, then I started having a majorly runny nose and a cough then, at the weekend, my ear was so painful I could only lie down and sleep. At this point I decided to phone the emergency doctor, who gave me an appointment at 6.15 on Sunday evening. It was such a gloriously sunny day on Sunday and Edward took Hector swimming and to the park…while I slept and slept some more.
Anyway, the nice doctor took my temperature, which was 40 degrees and my pulse was racing (I was sitting down, no running going on for the past few weeks) and when he looked in my ear he said I had a ‘profound’ ear infection 😦 So that’s why I have been feeling so, so bad. He gave me some anti-biotics and told me to rest some more. Yesterday I felt a little bit better and today I feel a little bit better again (still can’t hear on the right side though). I will be so glad to feel like my usual energetic self again…and to get out and run!
On the plus side, I haven’t been eating my usual mountains of food, so have lost a few pounds. Yay! I guess next week, I will just have to take in the sights of the 5k course, it certainly passes through some interesting spots.
