The cold turned out to be a bad one but I am over it now and have spent 30min/day on the bike for the last 3 days.
I did try running yesterday but after about 200m I could feel the discomort behind my R ankle . It didnt go off and I just did a mile. I had forgotten about that problem as it hasnt been bothering me for days whilst not running. So another couple of days rest and I might try again.
Alloa is clearly not going to happen for me.
This is all very frustrating.
