A Lost Day

I was developing a sore throat yesterday during the flights and transit from Hobart through Sydney and Canberra. I didn't think much of it until the final flight, so that by the time I landed in Canberra I was feeling very ordinary and the glands in my throat had swollen. Earlier enthusiam for heading to the pool or for a run this evening faded rapidly and sleep was a higher priority.

It was great to get back to the warmer Canberra weather, but I had heavy night sweats again despite sleeping with only a sheet. Crawled out of bed at 8:30am only because I had a dental appointment which I could easily have missed. After this, I returned home, made the bed with fresh sheets and slept for a few hours. When I awoke, the prospect of the final Aquathon of the season seemed a risky prospect, and decided to cut my losses and hope to recover soon.

Going to Customs 5k tomorrow is about a 25% chance at best I think. Have eaten the health food staple of ice cream and cold grapes tonight, feels good with my sore throat.

Things shall improve tomorrow.
