Listening to our body is a very hard thing to do.
I recently had one friend drop down to the half instead of completing the full marathon as planned due to some foot pain and other issues.
I also had another friend drop out of a half marathon due to foot pain.
This morning I was suppose to go run. I woke up with a sore achy knee, my back was hurting and a terrible sore throat. I wanted to go run. I debated on going to run. Yes I will go, No maybe not, Yes just go I'm sure you will feel better after right?
At the last possible minute I decided not to go. I think my body was telling me not to and just take the day for rest. My knee is still hurting BUT tomorrow morning I will run or at least try. Should I even if my knee still hurts? Probably not!
Why is it so hard to listen to our body? What would you do? Run or take another day of rest?
