Instead of taking the day off, I will present not one, but two topics.
First up, taking time off when you are sick. I learned the hard way back in 1978 when I went for a "short run" at night with a fever and difficulty breathing. The run went fine in the darkness, with the snow falling and I kept my streak of nearly 2 years intact!
And then 20 minutes later, I fell apart. Pneumonia and pleuritis ensued and I was out for a whole week! The pleuritis actually scars your chest wall and to this day when I get a cold or worse you can hear the wheezing and the rubbing every time I breathe.
So don't be stupid like I was!
