Evening followers! Here I am, back to Earth with a bump & back to the good old British weather.
I would’ve updated when I returned from my Portuguese adventure on Weds but I managed to get a mild but inconvenient form of Listeriosis… All because I was trying to eat well before my race next week!
I was eating fresh fruits & salad, fresh meat & other good things that should help me to build myself in the lead up. However, eating an entire Canteloupe Melon to oneself over a week was a mistake, especially after the lack of eating in the past 3days.
Listeriosis is something that you can get from Canteloupe Melons if they’re not prepared properly… Basically food poisoning but with a touch of migraine, nausea & hot/cold sweats. Hideous… Especially for me who loves her food!
I’m realising that now I’m back there’ll be no experimenting with funny food. Just eat what you know’s in date!
On a plus, there’s one week to go until the Half Marathon & my pack arrived in the post! Anyone else felt the nerves that hit when you get your first race pack for your first Half Marathon?
Scary! But exciting. And my partner is running it with me because he’s very good to me & is also doing it for a great cause.
So, if anyone has any Half Marathon advice for the final countdown, let me know! Any advice is helpful!
