To half or not to half?

So much for getting back on track! Now I know why I hate to miss a day, lethargy is so comfortable. Actually, I have been feeling pretty crappy all week, canceling plans left and right. Despite plenty of sleep, I have been having killer headaches. Needless to say, I only made it to the gym once all week. And of course, I felt better than ever! I turn into a total bitch when I don't workout, my poor co-workers!

So here is the dilemma, do I try to run the brooklyn half tomorrow even though all day I just wanted to crawl into bed?

I actually feel a tiny bit better now--maybe that's because it is friday night. I think I will take Betsy's plan of attack and go for a mini run tonight and see how I feel. If it's not raining when I get up at 6:30am to make the hour and half subway ride to Coney Island, I might try to muddle through!

I am so tired of not feeling fabulous that I might just pretend to feel fine until my body gives up on this migraine misery!

I'll let you know how it goes!

Only run if you feel totally up to it - don't strain your body!! In the meantime, enjoy your weekend :0)

Go with your gut! In my opinion, running is NOT all mental, and the truth of the matter is, long distance runs (i.e. 13.1 miles) are, indeed, strenuous and hard on the body! But you know you and your bod, so just go with how you feel :) If you decide to go with it, KICK ASS :)
