I've been whining about my allergies for the last few days. I'm not the only guy who has missed some training due to allergies/colds/flu and so forth. Duncan Higgitt, one of my counterparts in Wales and the author and publisher of the Boxing Aches blog, has had some difficulties recently, too.
He reports that a "nasty little virus" caused him to miss some training. Happily, though, he is back in training. Good job, Duncan, and get well soon!
