With my rest day came illness. By the time I went to bed last night my entire body felt like I'd been hit by a truck. No fever, but a lot of aches and tiredness. I'm being told it's the flu. I am faced with the dilemma of giving myself another extra rest day, or going to the gym sick.
I am inclined to forgo the gym today, mostly because my test foray down to the grocery store to get cat food left me feeling like I'd run a half marathon and then lost a fight with a prize fighter.
This is a dilemma that I face more often than I'm happy about, and it makes me wonder what the traditional wisdom is on this. All of my research has come up with conflicting answers: Skip the gym, Go but go Easy, Ignore the illness, it all seems to be in there.
What would you do, stay home or power through it
