Thank you all for the advice to take off and rest my body!!!
I wish I would've gotten your advice sooner. I ended up going for a little run anyway. :) I just couldn't help myself!!! It was just a 3.5 mile jog...but of course I could tell I was sick because yesterday and today's runs were a little harder, and the way I was sweating yesterday wasn't normal. It wasn't that I was over sweating or anything...it was just a different sweat than normal...almost like the cold sweats, but not. If that makes sense. Weird. But I don't feel much more sick- my throat is just scratchy and I'm not super hungry...so that's good. It was a risk and I think I made it! Wooot!
This morning I woke up in the best mood. So of course, I had to go running again. I've logged 26.5 miles this week! Can you believe this? I know- you probably think I'm insane. I sound more insane than I actually am. I'm training for a race, so this kind of mileage isn't unexpected. But it's a lot for me. 3 of my runs have been 6 milers. Than I had a 5 miler on Tuesday and a 3.5 yesterday. CRAZY. :) I'm so happy about it though. I feel so alive- so healthy, strong and good. And a little sick. :)
I'm excited for the weekend too...hope you all have a good weekend!
