I haven't been training for the past 2 weeks because of spring break and now, I have a pretty nasty cough.

My question is, have any of you trained with a bad cough before? I have no fever, my appetite is still good, and I don't have any fatigue to speak of. It's just I have this bad cough that springs up pretty often.

Tough it out and train or play it safe and let is go for another week.

I wouldn't worry about it unless you're feeling run down and worn. Just workout, eat well and get plenty of sleep. Also, you can shorted your routine somewhat and/or back off a little on loading if your not feeling 100%.

Makes me weaker but I generally feel a lot better after I work out and I am sick.

In general, it's OK to work out if the cold is somewhere from the neck up - unless your head is congested and you're having trouble breathing.

Be sure to practice health etiquitte and cover your mouth before you cough if you're working out in a gym. I see too many sick people coughing and sneezing away in the gym, seemingly oblivious to those around them
