I remember why I'm never as enthusiastic about the arrival of summer as most people are. Allergies! The weather may be nice, the sun might be out and the temperature soaring into the err…low 20s, but allergies contrive to make your life a misery!
It was particularly bad today. Extremely dry eyes, sore throat, persistent sneezing and a stuffed up, twitchy nose, you name it. GRRR! And that's after taking daily tablets to combat them. With luck the symptoms will pass in a while. In the meantime, expect to see me hanging around looking a little miserable from time to time! (just for a change :-))
Went on a walk from Campus to Leamington and back today with my 3 peaks challenge team, as part of our preparations for the event. About a 20km round trip. It took us just over 2 hours each way, with a break for lunch in leam. About 5km per hour – not too bad. My feet were quite sore by the end of it though, partly due to trying to wear in some new boots. Still, nothing a relaxing bath wont fix…mmm.
