Do you run when you have a cold? Does it depend on what stage of the cold you are in, or the severity? Do you put on your game face and run no matter what? Or do you pull the covers over your head and figure you can make it up later? PLEASE LET ME KNOW!
I'm suffering from a cold and trying to figure out just how hard to push myself. The timing is pretty bad, as this Saturday will be my VERY FIRST TEN MILE RUN!!! AND it will be on the exact course as next month's race. Obviously, this is one run I really don't want to miss, so I'm telling myself that a little cold never hurt anyone. However, that careful part of me says I'm no spring chicken and that I need to be careful not to turn this head cold into something worse. Temps should be in the mid to upper 30s Saturday morning and they aren't calling for any precipitation, so the conditions will be good for running.
Would love to hear from all you runners out there!
