Sneezes and sore throat
It’s wk6 run 2 tomorrow and my daughter has given me a stinking cold. It’s not on my chest just feeling lousy and bunged up! The question is do I just keep going carrying lots of tissues?
See how you feel... having a run that sucks is one thing, setting off when you know it will is a different beast. If I was as you describe tomorrow I wouldn’t run.
Personally, I believe running when under par is a waste of energy.
Get well and enjoy your run.
I caught a cold last week too. It’s annoying when something out of your control interferes with the program. It wasn’t in my chest either but my whole body ached. I ended up having to rest. I figured pushing myself might make the cold last longer than it might otherwise! See how you feel tomorrow but a couple of days rest to recover will be good and you can hit the next run stronger. Get well soon x
Definitely not. Run when you are well and feel good. Your body needs rest. Your running legs will be stronger and you'll crush it!
I got the same type of thing on Sunday, I ran on and it clears while you excercise. My thoughts were 'if I can work feeling like this then I can run' I'm due to run tomorrow and I'll be giving it a go.
I don't think there is any right or wrong tho. You do what suits you.
What a shame, but unavoidable. I’d evaluate how you feel, although if you’re in any doubt I’d say probably best to give it a miss. As others have said, imagine how disappointed you’ll feel if you have a horrid run, or can’t even complete it because of breathing or just feeling under par.
Best rest up and get back out when the cold has passed. 🤧
Good luck! 😀😀
So I didn’t want to lose momentum so I decided to do a week 2 run to keep it nice and gentle. Still feeling a bit snotty but glad I did it!!
my nostrils today just to see if it made a difference and it seems to have done. Has anyone else had anything...
hamstring muscles are so achy today which has surprised me. Just wondering if this is the norm?
from just walking each morning to doing a 5k parkrun (didn't run the whole way though), had to keep stopping...
