Has me sidelined this week. I used get really mad when I had to rest during illness. I admit that was my first reaction, but now I realize that my body needs the time to heal.
I even read a million running message boards to see if I "could" run with bronchitis. The internets came back with a resounding no.
From what I understand, if the cold/flu is in your head only then it's ok to run. Below the neck means rest. That's easy to remember!
Tomorrow I will go walk instead of run my 3 miles. It's ok because there were so many days in my life where I never even thought that was possible.
