3. Check your temperature

I definitely have tried the “I’ll just sweat out this cold with a workout” approach before. In my experience, sometimes it works, but sometimes you just end up feeling crappier than you did before. Experts agree that if you have a fever over 99 degrees, ditch any ideas about hitting the trail. When your body temperature is that high, you don’t necessarily have the mental clarity to make good decisions. Stay in and drink some tea, sweetie.

  1. Just in time. I’ve gotten a fall cold and I am on the fence about contining to train.

  2. I continued to workout last week and over the weekend with the onslaught of a head cold, and I must say it did not help but may have made it worse. This week I have had to sit out as the congestion is just now starting to break a bit.
    These nasty ass people I work with come to work sick cough and sneeze freely in the air spreading germs. I spray lysol but it didn’t help me this time.
