Now my question for you guys. I am 16 weeks out and I haven't really had a chance to get on schedule yet thanks to life happening. Should I scratch this weeks long run and start fresh and clean on Monday? Or if I am feeling better Monday just move the run to then and re-arrange the rest of the week around? If I improve over the day today I may try to head out this evening and see how I feel.

Summer Colds and Running Do Not Mix
My sore throat became a full blown head cold. Summer colds are absolutely no fun. I wish I had an audio clip so you could all hear how funny my voice sounds right now. Since I can't breath very well or stop coughing up a lung without the assistance of multiple over the counter meds running is not a smart option. I did go for an easy 5 on Friday when I only had sinus pressure and everything went fine during the run. However, after showering I had a worsening of all these fun symptoms including the worst ear pressure/pain I have ever experienced. There could be no relation between the run and worsening but I don't want to make this any worse than it is, especially since I am traveling on Monday.
