In case anyone ever tells you its okay to run a 1.2 marathon with the flu, it probably isn’t going to kill you, but I definitely don’t recommend it if you have another 1/2 marathon to run three weeks later. It’s 10 days since my first symptoms (and the 1/2) and while my sore throat, fever and general flu symptoms are gone. My body is a wreck. My bones still ache and I’m still exhausted. It probably didn’t help that I still had three days of vacation left and a very, very long day of traveling to get through. All I want is like four days of not getting our of bed. All I want is to go run six miles. Conflicts!
