I had a little bit of a sore throat yesterday but nothing terrible. But when my alarm went off at 5.15 this morning I swallowed and my throat was very sore and my voice has virtually gone. I contemplated not getting up for my run as I felt a bit rough but then I remembered what someone said on this site. If it's above the neck then run but if it's below the neck (ie chest infection) then don't. So off I went.
I am just so pleased that I did. Funnily enough I found it my easiest run for a long time and I did just over 5k in the 30 mins, so naturally I am very pleased with myself.
My throat still hurts and my voice is barely there (much to the joy of my hubby and sons!) but it proves that a little bit of a cold shouldn't stop you exercising.
I'm amazed that in just 2 more runs I will be a graduate!
