Ok well I have a stomach ache... not up to eat anything all that started yesterday... Hate that feeling.. I rarely get sick! Anyway Im on week 8 day 1 was going to run yesterday but decided not to cuz not feeling well and thought Id run today but no still need more rest. I have a 5k race coming up this Saturday the 17th... Im debating if I should run tomorrow or rest til 5K this saturday?? What are your thoughts??
You are not going to win or lose anything in terms of fitness and stamina because of running tomorrow, moreover, you will probably do better on your race if you are fully rested. So I would focus on getting healthy, if you feel totally ok tomorrow you can go for a light run to get the feeling back, but if not, just rest.
5k: 19:53 (December 31st 2014)
10k : 42:30 (March 9th 2014)
Half Marathon: 1:32:40 (February 1st 2015)
Marathon: 3:33:31 (March 15th 2015)
Completed my first marathon! Feeling like getting some more!
Running while sick for most runs it's okay to run if it's in your head and not run if it's below your head.
If you fell fine today run if you want, missing a day will not hurt you just don't make it a habit.
Digestive problems are the worst...I would say do a brisk walk for a couple of miles if you feel okay. You will not lose any of your 5k training in a few days.
Hope you are feeling better and best of luck!
