So....my "rah rah" feeling from my great runs on Tuesday and Wednesday has turned into more of a "woe is me" feeling courtesy of this ridiculous cough that seems determined to plague me. It is just as bad as it was back in January/February when I had bronchitis. Maybe it still is bronchitis? All I know is, this is getting old. Rest isn't making it go away and I'm not sure if being active is helping or hurting things. It may not be the smartest thing but I am determined to get my 8 mi run in this weekend. My coworker said something interesting earlier this week about being sick - sometimes you get so tired of resting that you figure you'll just go out running again with the idea being that you will either work this thing out of your system or you'll still feel crappy but at least you were running. I think I like that idea. In the event that the 8 mi run doesn't help to shake this thing off I have a doctor's appointment on Monday in case I need one of those puffer things. And also because another coworker threatened to take me to the doctor herself if I didn't go on my own.
