However, I also think that sickness sometimes comes on for a reason: I always seem to get sick when I'm too stressed, overworked, etc. So, I took my sickly feelings as a sign that perhaps I should slow everything down a bit and I took about a week off from running.
The problem with this is that it is really, really hard to get back into a working out groove. Especially when it is getting colder and colder outside.
I ran on my day off on Friday and it was an extremely tough run. I went for about five miles, which is half of what I used to do at least once a week before I got sick. Blah. Then, on Saturday, David and I went on a 9-10 mile run, which was also really hard but felt really good. I am glad that I have a partner who enjoys running as much as I do because it motivates me to go out and get moving. I am hoping that I can get my groove back despite the very chilly temps.
