When I went to bed yesterday I had every intention of running this morning. I even laid out my clothes! And yet, I did not go. I awoke with a tickle in my throat. And a general malaise. It's gotten slightly worse as the day has progressed but I am also wracked with guilt for missing a run/ride. I can't make it up tomorrow because that would throw off my Saturday 20 mile run.
I'm going to give into the extra rest day and hope that it pays off Saturday with a great run and that the tickle doesn't get any worse.
