Working out ...


What are the rules about working out after a head cold? Should I wait till I'm 100% snot free? I just started feeling better a few days ago but I'm dying to start sweating to the oldies again...

god, i wish i WANTED to go to the gym. if i get sick i just count it as a valid excuse not to go!

as far as germ spreading, i would say if you're not blowing your nose every few minutes and you clean your equipment nobody should care.

If anything is "off" above the throat then you're ok to work out so if it's just a cold then hit the gym.

[So, on a strange note, my word verification is "sicks".]

I would do some light stretching and maybe some light walking. You don't want to over exert yourself since your energy is going to healing your body. Yoga may also be a good exercise. It is fairly therapeutic and works well to get the blood pumping. I would stay away from anything that makes you sweat a lot-especially if it's cold in your area.

FEEL BETTER!
