All week long I have been battling a head cold - lots of congestion, sinus pressure, and general fatigue.
Tuesday and Wednesday I just took it easy with no exercise other than a morning walk.
By Thursday afternoon I needed some activity and was feeling better. I went out for an easy 4, just like I ran on Monday. It was good to get back out and the combo of cold and movement helped clear some copious mucous that was still clogging my sinuses. Now splattered across the pavement.
Now that I am on the tail end of this cold I plan to get back onto my training plan.
