To workout? Or not to workout?

We’re on day 5 of a cold here, and let me tell you…it’s NOT attractive.  I am probably the least attractive sick person ever.

I felt ok on Monday, so I pushed through a class at Unite.  I rowed instead of ran (I’ve been doing this a lot lately anyway, but I felt like it would be easier on me) and my weights definitely weren’t great.  Tuesday morning rolled around and I felt absolutely miserable.  After some hemming and hawing, I decided to cancel on my favorite night of the week….Anne Marie’s Tuesday awesomeness.  I knew I wouldn’t be able to handle the ass-kicking that she puts us through.  I went home, curled up, and went to bed at 9:30.  And I felt a little guilty.

Is that normal to feel guilty for not going to the gym when you’re sick?  And how do you know if you should workout or stay home?

I can’t wait to tackle the gym extra hard tomorrow…I’m feeling a million times better AND my new running sneakers came in.  Watch out, world….shit is gettin REAL.

PS – Why didn’t I do this?
