Exercising While Sick...Beat It

by Amy Crouse December 01, 2013



This time of the year is prime time for the flu and colds, especially if you are around nose-picking, snot flowing, bug catching, non-hand-washing children. (I guess they do help build immunities.) But when do you rest? And when do you press on with your exercise routine?

According to the Mayo Clinic website, you should listen to your body overall. The rule of thumb generally you can continue to exercise if your symptoms are “above the neck” like a cold or minor soar throat. But, scaling back on intensity is best.

 If you have “below the neck” symptoms like stomachaches and chest congestion, you should rest. It’s OK to rest, your overall performance won’t be affected.

 Another good story about what exercises to do while sick:  http://www.cnn.com/2013/10/10/health/exercising-with-cold-flu/

 It’s all about balance. It’s all about choosing between better and best and taking care of yourself so you can push your self to be stronger and BOLDER.
