COVID to 50k Week 16 Run 1.

Back in March 2020 I suddenly felt ill. I didn't display the most common symptoms of COVID-19 but I was hit by a fatigue I've never experienced before. I had an initial couple of weeks off work, started feeling a bit better, but did more than I should have and ended up ill again. I've been slowly recovering since.
