Day three of ‘Walk All Over Cancer’ which you have to aim to do 10,000 steps per day to raise funds for Cancer Research UK. The fundraising is up to £145 which is really good. A BIG thank you to all our sponsors to date.

It is fun, but tough, doing 10,000 steps per day as I am still recovering from glandular fever  (GF) which comes back if I do too much. However, these relapses are not as bad as the early days with GF. I still take daily vitamins (including echinacea which I’d recommend), avoid caffeine and drinking plenty of water. I do give in to the odd cake and sugar treat 🙂

Water is good for flushing the Epstein-Barr virus out of your system. General advice is to drink at least eight large glasses of water a day.

GF seems to affect a lot of young athletes like Olympic gymnast Max Whitlock and promising young golfer Amber Ratcliffe. They all go on to full recovery, so if you currently have GF take heart as you will recover it just takes time and a sensible balance of rest and gradually increasing your activity levels.
