Today may be an unscheduled rest day. Blah. It's only two miles, but I came home from work early because of this nagging-kicked-in-the-stomach-by-a-horse feeling that popped up every 15 minutes or so. I had a non-stop dull ache until this sharp shooting pain would start up. I tried to tough it out, but what made me give in was the fact that if I had a stomach virus that has been going around, I did not want any of the little ones to get it. So, I called it a day and a sub was called in on short notice. I'm sitting here on the couch after some crackers, water, and a 2 hour nap feeling good. I had a Clif bar a bit ago and it feels fine. I'm not quite sure what the pain was, but it wasn't a virus. It's 46 and sunny out right now and I just have a dull ache and feel really, really tired. Do I head out when I took half a sick day for the 2 miles? I don't feel perfect, but good enough to go...but then there's that guilt. I might just do the 2 on Friday or skip it all together ("I might just do the 2 on Friday or skip it," said the Naked Gun fans). It is a taper week after all. I guess I'm convincing myself right now to listen to my body and make my taper 2 miles less (or more since it's a taper???).
