Injury and illness

I've a marathon to run in around 60 days and for December I moved house and then went straight on holiday.

I came back from holiday, managed a single 10k run and then hurt my ankle on a silly 3 hour bike commute.

It's now been 3 weeks and the ankle is better, but not perfect and I'm itching to get back into running. However, I've now picked up a cold and by head and neck feel sore. And the rule is, if you have a bunged up nose or a cough, run gently, but any aches and pains, stop running. In this case I can't even start.

I may just push through it and use the weekend to recover ... if I wasn't going to a friends child's first birthday party thing.

I just want to run.
