Or JOK will be good practice for the JK....
or rest up to get over your illness before the 'lots of orienteering' at the JK....... oh, no sorry silly idea...fell race for variety
I am a bit concerned that the illness is taking a while to shift. There is a frankly remarkable amount of mucus.
I am tempted by JOK but it's just a bit short. I'll probably see how I feel tomorrow night.
Running / racing whilst ill can have pretty dire consequences. People have been known to die. eg. Mike Wells Cole.
If you carry on racing / running, and wondering why you're still unwell, you're not as sensible as you might think you are. When the body is fighting infection, why would you divert energy & resources to the stresses of running? (when you dont' need to)
In the 1990s i read that running whilst ill can deposit scar tissue around the heart - potentially reducing your life span.
I've read a bit about it and I agree it's not a good idea if you have something particularly bad - but this isn't bad, it's just extended. I haven't even considered taking time off work, for example. If there was a reasonable excuse to not do any training, believe me I would be using it!
