Difference a Week (or 10 days) Makes
I guess having a bad cold does impact your running. When you're in the middle of it, it seems like you'll never get back to normal. Every step is a hurdle. Now that I'm recovered, I appreciate each day of being healthy and running. 2 miles, 5 miles, 7 miles. Some steps are certainly tough. But all are good. After the half-marathon, I'll start knocking out long runs...15 miles, 18 miles, 20 miles. Those miles won't all be easy, but they'll be appreciated. Health leads to happiness. Healthy, happy, and fit. That's my goal. For the next 30+ years.
If you're struggling with illness or injury, hang in there. It will get better. Maybe it'll be a week. 10 days. A month. Even a year. Hang in there. Once you make it to the other side, you'll be stronger.
