Sick (strep I suspect since all three of my kids have it) - and trying to figure out what to do. This is really the only day I have to run. I teach at least 2 and as many as 4 classes each day this next week (15 total this week). Do I suck it up and run anyway or rest? I'm not sure my husband is going to let me out the door, but if I don't run today I really think i need to bag even attempting NYC half next month. I just won't be prepared. With this solo parent gig, work and all the classes I've been teaching, I just haven't been able to run as much as I need to. I missed last week with some things going on with the kids and the next two weeks are crazy with classes and a big fitness conference in Baltimore weekend after next.

    Hope you are feeling better. You can try to run and see how you feel out there.

    Strep isn't something you can push through. You need to rest.

    Get better Erica - I think you should rest and worry about the running later.

    Thanks, guys. Eric made the decision for me. I guess one of the good things about having my husband home now if he can talk some sense into me and put his foot down! Rest day it is...
