I really do wish I could listen to advice more often. Day 5 of man flu and head is clear now but chest playing up big time. But bouyed by the success of wk9r2 two days ago despite the man flu, I decided to try another run today. Knew I would not be up to the 30 mins so went instead for the two 10 minute sessions from earlier in the program and only got as far as 8 minutes before lungs said enough is enough.
A friend who works with the coach for one of our top paralympic athletes told me last night that the neck rule for colds and flu - if its just a head cold, then train normally, you'll be fine. If its below the neck and in the chest, do nothing, you will only damage your fitness. I wish I had listened.
Taking two or three days proper rest and will then go for my graduation run. Own wrists slapped for thinking I knew better.
