I am taking today off
Yesterday was a full rest day. Good thing, too, since I woke up with a hell of a head cold and spent most of the day tired and miserable, finding it very hard to concentrate enough to get any work done.
Today is an improvement, but I'm not completely over my cold. Schedule calls for 3 miles. If it were twenty degrees warmer, I might do it, but I'm not going to go out and run in a level of cold (24 degrees) that I'm not seasoned to just yet while still nursing a cold.
And somehow, I don't think it's wise to go to the gym and do the three on a treadmill, either. Something about not exposing dozens of other people to my cold germs.
So I will take a long, slow walk today, soak up some sunshine, and maybe, MAYBE do some core exercises and my ankle weight exercises before I go to bed tonight. Instead, I will take this Martin Luther King, Jr. day and try to get more work done.
I'll try to make up the mileage tomorrow, but I won't sweat it if this turns out to be the one and only dropped run in the schedule so far.
