This Week’s Progress

FINALLY an explanation!?

It’s been a very unsuccessful few months on the running front, I haven’t managed to get out much over the course of the last 3 months, infact I’d say 2 of those months I barely got to run at all. The ferocious virus I had lasted close to 3 months and in the end turned in to a really bad cold, I was put on antibiotics and now for the first time in 3 months I actually feel strong again, I feel healthy again, and I’m back out running again.

Is this the reason why I just haven’t been right for so many months?

The Vaccination Program

The treatment and bone marrow transplant I had a year ago basically means that my body was wiped clean, I have a new body, it means that any vaccination I have had since being born was wiped, so due to that reason, the hospital provided a schedule of a new vaccination program that I needed to complete. I started it about 3 or 4 months ago and as you can see it’s fairly intensive, it turns out that some of the side effects of vaccinations include fever, shivering, headaches, muscle or joint pain and last but not least, surprise surprise, fatigue.

So it seems that the regular vaccinations may be having an effect on my body, especially considering that my immune system hasn’t built back up yet, but there’s not a whole lot I can do about it for now but at least things do seem to be getting better. This is just another step in this long recovery process.

My Running

I managed to get 3 runs in this week, one of which was the Tymon Parkrun, as well as 1 yoga class so it’s been a really great week, I feel better again, I feel more able now and I’m looking forward to improving my fitness again.

With temperatures of 20 degrees or over the first two runs they were tough enough, thankfully it was a lot cooler for the Parkrun yesterday and although I wasn’t tracking my time, I’m very happy with the result! It’s good to be back and feeling myself again.

  1. Dear Chris,
    my name is Annelie and I am Martinas mother. I am always interested reading news on your blog an for me it is challenge to do it in Englisch.
    So please let me tell you: be proud that you are such a strong young man an be happy to have people in your life like your girlfriend and your family.
    For the future all the best wishes (also from all the people I told your story) and I hope that all your dreams will come true and you will enjoy many many years together with your girlfriend.
    The way you write down your story is exciting and professional. Did you think about writing a book. In my mind it could be readable for young people, parents and even for doctors, because all of them can learn a lot of you.
    Sorry about my bad English!

    Best regards from Germany
