I graduated last Friday (woohoo!) then woke up on Saturday with a cold! I don't normally let colds affect me too much in the normal course of events but by crikey it has really affected my running!
On Monday I coughed and spluttered then gave it up as a bad job after 18 minutes. On Wednesday I decided to do a kind of modified Week 1 - run for a minute then jog for 90 seconds to recover then repeat - 20 minutes later I nearly booked myself in for a lung transplant. Same thing this morning I just can't seem to get enough oxygen into my lungs, I really didn't expect a silly little cold to have such a bad effect.
I think I will probably just keep going until the situation improves but I would be interested to hear other peoples experiences of running when under the inFLUence.
