I've been fighting a bit of a cold all week. It wasn't too bad until yesterday when I was a coughing, sniffling, sneezing, congested mess by the end of the work day. After much internal debate, I made the smart decision to call off last night's run. I can't remember the last time I missed a run! It stings, but I need to get healthy.
Today was a scheduled rest day and I took the day off work. I actually feel quite a bit better this morning but I will be taking it easy all day and hoping to be well enough for my race tomorrow and long run Sunday.
