In sickness and in health
Hey everyone, how are you doing? I am okay… I don’t know if it is allergies, sinuses, or just some random bug, but ugh. I am done with it. The past 3 or 4 days have just kinda sucked that way. Oh well, the show must go on. I was able to get a slow 2 miles in, still a mile is a mile.
How do you guys approach exercise when you are sick. Now I don’t mean, down and out sick, but just kinda run down and not 100%, do you power through? Skip it? Modify it? Before I was all about skipping it, I’m not well, lets just give my body a break. I can’t do that this time around because I need to keep up my run streak. A mile a day until the end of the year, I am on day 24, I can’t skip a day this early in the game. So… I put my shoes on and got my miles in. I don’t feel worse for wear and I don’t feel better. So I guess no harm no foul and it did put a little bit of a pep in my step.
I don’t know about you guys but I can really milk a cold. Now, I am not talking man flu worthy(sorry men) but it gives me a reason to be lazy for a day or seven. I totally use it as an excuse to do nothing, so I am happy for my run streak commit to keep up and moving.
