Just a really easy run. Had to stop when I started convulsive coughing and spewing up gunk from my lungs.

That little gunk may be telling you something....(rest fool!). Seriously, feel better but give your body time to fight the infection, you will recover faster.

Bret, Steve - what are you guys saying? Don't you care about me and my race times? No pain, no gain is what I say. I can always get a lung transplant if I need too.

Don't worry guys - he's just a big baby - he only coughed up blood twice during the 3K and once in the mile while in Albuquerque. About to post a link to some pics of the beast over at his race report a couple days ago (unfortunately, I have none of the said coughed up blood).

Um yeah.. ditto to the stop running part. You already know that you won't lose any fitness.
