I am doing the Race for Life on Sunday and since we missed our regular training session on Wednesday due to the monsoon type weather, we thought we'd go out for a short run tonight.

I woke up yesterday with a cold - feel hot and cold with blocked nose etc. I have taken Neurofen cold and flu and paracetamol. Should I give it a miss tonight? I have to do the run on Sunday obviously. Will exercise make it worse?(have I heard that somewhere? hmm)

Anyone there is a more sporty than me who can help?

Won't make you worse, but won't help you any. I wouldn't bother. Bed, fluids and rest, says Dr Gizmo.
