no running.  Sick and I feel much worse than I have for the past two days.  I have a slight fever and I'm congested as hell....I think I over did it yesterday with a race and an hour pool run while sick (I went to the pool later yesterday). I really wanted to run but unless I'm healthy it's worthless and I need to get better, so I slept, a lot.

5 easy + standard core routine.

Still sick, but feeling slightly better.  Really warm outside today....did five easy and felt fine.  Really mucousy coughs and hacks...probably going to skip tomorrow's work-out and op for another very easy day :(  I hope to have this thing kicked by Thursday. Nasty little virus.

AM: 5 easy hilly to work + standard core routine

PM: 7 easy hilly from work

Feeling better today, energy has returned and I feel it is safe to start training normally again. Also hot as balls at least mid 90s when I ran this afternoon with high heat index...just went slow and drank plenty of water.
