Here goes the SMS conversation I had with my coach this morning:
Me: Hi Coach, do you think I can run today if I have cough and colds?
Coach: Mam, no. Take lots of liquid, medicine, and rest. Pls advise when we can continue our run. Tnx and get well.
Me: Oh, I was hoping ud say otherwise cos I wanted to run alone later. Okay I’ll take your advise. I hope am better by tomorrow so we can run in Alabang.
My thoughts: Grrr…I shouldn’t have asked! I should’ve just run!
Five minutes later…
Coach: Mam, sorry I mistook you for another mom who does recreational running. Anyway, if the cold and cough are bad, no running. If mild, just run for maintenance of fitness, light session will do.
Me: Yey! Okay! I’ll do an easy run on the treadmill later. I hope I’m feeling better tomorrow.
My thoughts: Maybe I should speed it up later and drain the virus out of my system through sweat? Would that work? I hate being sick. Sniff sniff.
