Well in typical Michael fashion - I'm SICK!! Head cold. My nose will not stop running, sore throat, headache, sneezing and lymph nodes the size of walnuts.
I worked from home for about 4 hours, but spent most of the day in bed today. It seems like everytime I have something major coming up - like a half marathon on Sunday - I get sick.
I guess I should have expected it - between training, a crazy work schedule, and travel - I've been stretching myself pretty thin and now my body is screaming for rest. I ran on Monday morning and could barely make it 2 miles - I thought I was still tired from my 11 miler on Saturday - but now I know I was getting sick. I skipped my run this morning, and at this point I know I won't feel like running tomorrow. I am in my taper week, but I don't want to go into a half marathon having only ran 2 miles the previous 7 days. I don't know what to do....push myself and run tomorrow or take another rest day and run a few miles on Friday?
What would you guys do? I need advice.
