Should I train with what could be the start of a cold?
DAMN YOU COLD!
It could be that it is my body's reaction to the fact that I woke up very cold the other morning because I didn't leave my heater on, or it could be a simple rhinovirus that is struggling to take hold, as I have rolled with someone recently who was "just coming out of a cold" and it has been going around my office.
Truthfully, it hasn't hit hard. I have a little nasal congestion, but can breathe relatively easy through it. Maybe a little reduced cardio, definitely not at my peak and this is causing me to feel only a tiny bit weakened. Paraphrasing my mate who was paraphrasing his coach, "if you keep the furnace hot enough, you'll burn through anything", referring to training and metabolism, which is why I think I am faring better than my co-workers who reckon when it hit them it hit them hard.
I have heard conflicting opinions on dealing with a potential cold. One idea is to train, sweat the ************ out and fight through it. The other is to jump into bed and fight it through rest.
Obviously I don't want to give a cold to someone if I have a cold, but I also don't want to give up a couple of days training just because I am feeling "a little off".
Tell me what to do.
