A race that wasn’t meant to be! The night before I felt feverish but didn’t consider this could be glandular but felt awful race morning. I still decided to eat breakfast, remain positive and give it ago. For the first 4/5 laps I felt okay at 6.25 pace but on the 7th one I felt awful and made a decision with Alex who was keeping me company to pull out as I had terrible chest pain, dry throat, and burning eyes. After this, I decided to seek medical advice as the doctor locally provided me another glandular test and this came up positive again.
