swine flu

swine flu
When to bed Sunday with a mild headache and slight sore throat. Awoke at 2am with a banging head and throat and ears that didnĀ't feel like mine and whole body shivering and aching.

With the help of NHS Direct and a very understanding wife was underway in a course of Tamiflu. Was working a treat then added a bout of tonsillitis to the mix. Course of antibiotics later and well on the road to recovery.

Why the post? Well firstly as a little reminder to me of the ordeal but more importantly has got me thinking about general health and the importance of keeping healthy. It is easy to see how something like swine flu could do some serious damage to the vulnerable.

Got me seriously thinking about next year and cutting down on booze, eating healthy, staying healthy and having a serious 6 month crack at training for the UK 70.3.
