Running with a cold?
3

AliceScarlett · 19/04/2016 12:25

Been off work for 2 days, it's a bad cold, but I'm not unable to wash up/shower/whatever. I don't feel like I could run, but maybe I'm being a wuss?

Do people exercise with a cold?

It depends on how bad it is. Run as much as you feel able to under the circumstances. I would think if it's bad enough to stay home from work you shouldn't be running (and if your work found out you were running when you were off sick you could get into a bit of trouble). So lay off for a couple of days maybe and ease back into it with shorter, lighter runs when you do feel able to do it.

Hope you feel better.

In my opinion you should wait until you are well, and don't exercise if you have sore throat. That can put pressure on your heart muscle...my sister was very ill after doing martial arts while ill. Just wait until you are feeling strong and 'normal' .
