don't run - you need to rest and recover. don't run again till you are properly better - might be a day or two after you feel ok
if you feel bad then you won't benefit from the training anyway and will just make you worse. I think that rule is a load of cobblers to be honest! if you have a headache and feel dizzy then you can't train properly anyway! you'll just end up being ill longer and missing more runs. If you regularly use a heart rate monitor and know what your resting heart rate is then, then you can guide whether to run or not based on that. if your resting rate is 10 or more above normal, don't train
The above neck/below neck thing is just a guide. If you have a headache, are feeling dizzy, and are very tired, then you're not well enough to train. Rest.
