Sick...Again.

Yesterday I took a rest day even though I had planned on moving one of my 5 milers over to that day. I didn't make it out of work until late and I just really didn't feel much like running at that point. I had a sore throat the whole day and pretty much knew what was on the way. You see, I sat in a car for 8 hours with my sick father this weekend when we were driving back from Kansas City. He had a cold and was sneezing his germs all over the place. Well now Andy and I are sick and I hear my mother is too. I HATE being sick. There is probably nothing I hate more. So...I'm overdosing on vitamin C and hoping this clears up fast. I'm definetly still running tonight but praying that this stuff stays at bay by then as well. I have a class reunion to attend and I don't want to be all sniffly for it!

UGH! If one more person passes their germs on to me this summer...I think I'm going to go live in a cave all by myself! J/k!

I hope you feel better soon! I always mega dose vitamin C, too. The other thing I always try to keep in mind is that running can be good as long as the cold doesn't migrate into your chest. I've actually found that running while suffering from a stuffy nose or a sore throat can sometimes make me feel better. Just remember not to push too hard!

I'm sorry your not feeling well! I know how frustrating that is when you are trying so hard to stick to a training program. Emily has some good advice. Just don't over-do it, and the running might actually help your body fight it off. But don't worry about the schedule too much. Its not going to help you run better if you just get sicker!

Poor Rachel. I agree with the rest of the comments. Relax, take it easy (isn't that a song). Hope you feel well soon.
