Hard-found wisdom: Running with a sore throat does not make your throat or run better. In fact, it makes the run totally, completely, utterly, and any other all-encompassing adjective, miserable.
I did alright with the 1st 5 minute run. I figured the 3 minute walk would rest me enough for the 8 minute run…. Wrong! I walked for a small part of the 8 minute run. I actually gave up on the during the last 5 minute run. That’s right. I gave up during the last 5 minute portion of my run. My lungs were burning and I was hacking up phlegm and other yummy stuff by that point. I was done. This was the 1st day of Week 6. I will be redoing this day on Thursday.
