Sinusitis, Rockstar, Running Whilst Sick
I've had a horrible case of sinusitis. It has taken me down for the last 2+ weeks... felt like a cold at first, thought it'd pass in a day or two, or three... but now on day 17. Halfway through a bout of antibiotics and feeling a bit better, but still not 100%.
I missed Rockstar. It's one of my favourite races. Sadness.
Running Whilst Sick
I tried a run early in the illness - that was a bad idea. It went horribly, and probably made it worse.
This weekend (day 14/15), despite still being fatigued and my throat being sore and phlegm still flowing...
... I said "screw it" and ran again. Short runs, slow, they were tough, but I didn't feel bad after. I think it makes a big difference whether you're on the start or end of the illness. I'm getting better, slowly, but this has really sucked. Especially in summer.
