Should I exercise if I have a cold/feel unwell?
– Generally speaking if symptoms above the neck (no chesty cough) and no fever, LIGHT exercise may help you get better quicker.
– If light headed or resting heart rate raised >10bpm… take a day off. Rest up.
– Remember if you push on through it is likely the illness will stick around longer and chances of re-infection are higher.
