In a week when I have not actually been in school teaching, or using my voice a lot, I have woken with an incredibly sore throat. I feel as if I have the beginnings of a cold, and ache all over. Bob has been really kind, bringing me breakfast in bed and encouraging rest – no running today, he says.
I am being sensible – but not finding it easy. Can’t afford to get ill now, not the week before my run. More generous friends last night signed my sponsor form – I cannot possibly let all these people down.
