I was all worried about my 14 miler this week because my 8 miler went to the crapper on Wednesday because I was sick...Actually, I'm still sick but the run actually went okay. I was bummed I had to extend my 8 miler across two days to finish it, but at least I got my other two major runs in. (10 miler on Monday and the 14 miler yesterday.) I was supposed to log 40 miles this week and I logged 40.5, just by accident. I'm just glad I got the miles in. This week my long run is going to be upped to 15 miles. I've only run that far once, so this is where things could start getting hairy for me...We'll see how my body fares.
Anyways, I don't know whether to hold back because I still have a sore throat, cough, and congestion, or whether I should continue to try to do my schedule without alterations. What do you do when you're sick and training for a marathon? I know we just have to listen to our own bodies but do you have any advice?
