Fitness Friday!!

Workout 3miles with Manda at 5:45am in 26:36. I had a very rough start to the run. Yesterday my throat started getting all scratchy and that metal taste in my mouth. I took NyQuil last night so I could sleep. I kept having weird dreams about my alarm until the alarm finally went off. When I woke up my throat was completely swollen....enter Man Voice! But Manda was waiting and I took a rest day yesterday. So I got up and with in 5mins I was out the door and headed toward her place. Thankfully I said last night that I just wanted to do something easy because I am going to try my 13miles that failed on Monday and to do it tomorrow. We also have a 5k race in the morning.

My Garmin (stupid old thing) was so far off today I was M.A.D.!!

Dear those who love me.....hint hint...my bday is soon!!!

Anywhoodle....Manda and I talked the whole time about Wedding stuff for her and before we knew it we were back to the townhouse.

It didn't last long though...I got home and curled up on the couch...my eyes did not open back up until 10 am!!! I think NyQuil was still working it's wonders....but I didn't feel too bad because Bri was still sleeping too!!!


So those visiting from Fitness Friday....common colds...how do they effect your workout routine? Do you power through it and try to sweat it out of you? Do you see a big pace difference?

Manda noticed my form changing as we ran and I was feeling my lungs getting tight as we ran further.

I'm a bit of a baby when it comes to working out and being sick. I'm always paranoid that running might make it worse but of course it depends on the kind of sick.

If I do try to run I keep the pace to what feels comfortable and easy.

I try to power through with an easy run. A lot of the times I feel better afterwards.

Hope you feel better soon.

Thanks for linking up with FR!

(FF hopping)... I have read that if it is from the neck up - go ahead and run. Fever, aches and pains, no go. But where does that leave sore throats? I was ill for three days last week and then took a hard weekend of exercise and a long run at the beginning of the week. Feeling not-so-great. Not sure if it is mental or physical though. Hope you have a great race Saturday!

I try to work through it. I'm sure that my pace suffers, but unless I have a fever I still try and work out.
