Operation Big Girl Knickers aka Panties

Sunday was my last workout.  I started feeling tired and achy in the afternoon, and come Monday morning, I had a sore throat.  I thought nothing of it, and tried to ignore it, but by the time I got home, I had very achy bones.  Tuesday saw a very sore throat, and all the rest of it.  In fact I went to bed as soon as I got home from work.  I thought I would do a little run or a few stairs tonight, but I was coughing and hacking so much, I thought it best not to.  However, tomorrow is Thursday and I need to take some drastic action as my stair climb is only a few days away.  Hence Operation Big Girl Knickers - though I am sure the US version, Big Girl Panties, renders the idea more clearly.
Tomorrow I shall put them on and sort this out - I need to take some kind of action as I have not done anything for 3 days now.  I am hoping to do some stairs and skipping.  I will report back - and give an update on the panties.....


  1. Call it taper and rest up!

    But if you do do something, definitely report back some sort of knicker update :-)

    Feel better!

  2. I'm with Julie: taper and rest.

    You are ready for the stairs!

    Get well soon!

  3. Hope you are feeling better already. You can put on the panties but take it easy and rest well.

  4. I hope you are better!
    Also I so prefer the word "knickers" to "panties." Maybe I will start a one-woman campaign to have the U.S. switch from the later to the former.
    "Panties" creeps me out.

  5. si puo ' rispondere anche in italiano ?? :-))

  6. I started an email at work to you but haven't finished it. You are ready to run the stairs and are more prepared than you realized (1600 vs 3200 an You'll kick the cold quick and then blast through the stairs.

  7. Non sottovalutare mai il mal di gola. Meglio un giorno di riposo in più che uno in meno. In bocca al lupo e riprenditi presto! Lo sai ...the Black Knight Army needs you!
