WODs are harder when you feel sick

I woke up today feeling like my head was about 5 times larger than normal, the headache I had last night exploded into a heavy feeling indicating an impending head cold.  I still got up to go to the gym though. I was hoping that maybe exercise would alleviate some of my discomfort.  It only made me not think about it for 30 minutes. I'd like to blame my poor performance today on how I was feeling but I think this was a pretty tough workout that would chew me up even on a good day:
Run 400M
10 Burpees
20 Push Press (45 lbs)
30 Kettlebell Swings (35 lbs)
4 rounds
I finished in 24:55.
By the third round, I had to break up the push presses in sets of 10 to finish and had to put the kettlebell down after 20 reps and start over to finish.  Also in the last two rounds, I'd say I was "jogging" and even walking more than running.  It was a hard workout.
