Exercise when you're getting over a cold?

Post by Helena115 » Fri May 22, 2009 9:46 am

Is it okay to work out when you're getting over a cold? I've been sick since monday with sore throat, stuffy nose and a slight fever. The fever's gone now and I'm itching to do some weight training, but my nose is still stopped up... do you all think it'd be okay to do some light training?

If you're eating normally, and feel reasonably energetic, I think it's OK to get back into it. While you're still achy and tired it's best to just stay home and feel sorry for yourself.

Ah, yes, I failed to mention that I've been traveling to two countries in Europe this week, both have reported cases of the swine flu... someone better spray this board with some bleach or something :green:

Thanks for the advice. I really like the idea of feeling sorry for myself, but it's not as fun doing it without loads of Ben & Jerry's. And I don't have any.

I think I'll try and do some easy weight training and see how it goes. I'm feeling okay except for the stuffy nose.

Oddly enough, I almost posted this question. The past two days I've worked out still feeling somewhat sick (mostly congestion). Interestingly enough, I lifted more than usual (probably because I had a week of rest though).

I appreciate the concern which is been rose. The things need to be sorted out because it’s not about the individual but it can be with everyone.

You should have this kind, just in case some swine flu victim you meet might sneeze in your eyes. Wear it all the time, everywhere you go.
