Big plans, a cold and lessons learned

Yeah, it was supposed to be a tough midweek for running. A 10 miler with 5 miles at 4:15 to 4:20 pace, a 5 miler and a 11 miler. I should have done two of the three but am about to go under the covers to take the shivers out of me. Have a cold, feel bad and in no mood to go out running. Haven't run since Sunday's 26K.

I suppose a few years ago I would have snuck in a run. Today, I know to listen to the body. I hope to rest it off, see if I can run tomorrow if I'm okay just to keep cardio going. Weekend, still have a race and a long run through the hills of Burlington.

Time to sleep off the aches.
