When I woke up Wednesday feeling completely horrible, I knew running was out of the question that day. But the pressure in my head hasn't gone away, and I continue to be exhausted. Also, my lungs feel weakened. However, I just started the antibiotics yesterday so hopefully I'm on the up-and-up.
But really, how sick is too sick for you guys to not run? Part of me is enjoying the rest, especially since it's been nothing but rain here in DC. But of course, the bigger part is sad that I haven't been running in a week. I feel like I'm losing muscle mass, gaining fat mass, and just becoming more and more blob-ish. At what point during an illness (if there is one) do you not run? Does that decision change if you run at a gym? If the weather is wet and cold? I'm currently not training for anything specific, so I don't have to run, it's just that I really want to.
