Just a word of advice.... my "go-to" for all things running is my dad, who has been running for over 40 years... whenever I am contemplating taking a day off due to injury or illness, I always remember what he says.... "you have the rest of your life to run" - meaning... take a day or two now for years and years of healthy running in the future.
It's also interesting to note that he does not take his own advice and has been running 6 days a week, rain or shine, injury or illness, for most of those 40+ years and he can now barely walk and is in a lot of pain all the time.
So, it's GREAT advice to heed!
