Getting occssional glimpses of what feeling good is like and it's the best thing ever. Managed to get 10 hours of very near solid sleep the past couple of days + 2-3 hours rest. Very nice but took a very long time to wake up this morning.

Finally got a chance to run in the snow!! :) Although snowing so probably not the best time to go. Made myself rest for ~30min after just in case but it was definitely forced which is exciting. First time in a while that excitement has been stronger than fear. A while ago the doctor said to not be scared of over doing it and definitely have been the past few weeks. For me it's a good thing as it stops me doing too much. It just becomes a problem if it stops you doing anything.
I've found 4 ways to deal with chronic fatigue. 1) Be too scared to do anything so stay within my comfort zone and feel better than if I was pushing, but not improving my overall health. 2) Don't do anything for a while, feel a bit better, then do too much because whatever I'm doing doesn't feel that bad, crash, and take a week to recover. 3) Consistently do slightly too much and gradually go backwards. 4) Consistently push the limits without going over them and improve, even if a lot of the time that means feeling more tired/having more symptoms than complete rest. From everything that I've seen or read rest doesn't make you improve. It just stops you from overdoing it, and allows you to recover. Hopefully I understand my body well enough that the general trend. I'm sure I will over do it again but that's no biggy if the over all trend is up.
Keeping with the ~200m further per every 2 days theme. (Accidental until today but fitted with what I wanted to do) 400 FC, 200 BC, 4 X 200m IM Kc 200 FC Everything with 15s rest in between. Hopefully within my limits (with a rest after)
