So last Sunday I completed the Race for Life! I had been so very pleased. I completed in 32:53, which given the actual fact my focus on was to take action in under 35 minutes I am fairly chuffed about. It’s also my all-time 5k personal best which is fairly surprising because a lot of that time period on the Nike application I cheat by pausing the timer when I’m resting at traffic lighting. Please excuse the loon-ish grin.

It was a proud moment. I liked the whole race day experience and I think I will have well and truly been bitten by the working bug. Day doing that marathon I definitely want to transport on with races with a dream of one. I just really like running and I’m so glad I started. Unfortunately, there is a sad twist to the tale as regrettably running does not currently love me.

On race day or possibly your day before I used to be bitten with a secret evil insect (possibly a spider, grim). The poison required a couple of days to properly get hold before I had fashioned a severe allergic reaction which I have cheerfully been describing to friends and family as ‘the pox’. I used to be covered in a totally insane rash which people ended to stare at on the road before crossing the road to avoid catching leprosy themselves. I had been so itchy it felt like I was undergoing some type of literal torture, and I possibly could not focus on anything or rest.

I had to invest about two thirds of my amount of time in ice frosty showers, only removing myself when the chills and shivering were so bad they outweighed the itchiness. You’ll be pleased to know that by using three doctors and £70 worth of medicine I am finally on the mend but it offers come at a price as I put to dominate weekly off running. Right now it feels unbelievable that under a fortnight ago I finished a 5k race in a fairly reasonable time feeling great and looking such as a human being as opposed to a melted glaciers cream.

All I can think is that this must be ‘the pox’ and I will have to gradually but gradually work to develop my fitness again. I really want to begin blogging more again and might even schedule a new post for the weekend AT THIS TIME so watch this space.

Get outside. Even though light sensitivity can trigger symptoms, it’s still important to go out. Make sure to use sunscreen with an SPF of 50 or higher, and to avoid direct light exposure. Bring a wide-brimmed head wear Always, sunglasses, and sit down in the tone. Practice good hygiene. Washing hands before and after eating is key for optimal immunity. Managing pain. Consider trying hot showers, sea salt and lavender baths, acupuncture, tai chi, and restorative yoga.

Practice good respiratory cleanliness. This practice includes curating your environment to guarantee the air quality is top-notch, and quitting habits like smoking. When the body has to struggle to inhale and exhale, it places stress on the bloodstream and center vessels. This extra stress can be problematic in the long-run and contribute to worsening of symptoms.
