    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    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.

    Well there is still a large posibility of contagion
    Am I right?
    Anyways I heard from a fencing friend that if you shower just after you finish the excercise there is less posibility of getting a cold or worsening it

    My advice is to: Dont roll, cardio and stretching until you get better

    My experiences training while sick have all been terrible.

    If its not slowing your motivation and you dont feel like ****, go and have an easy day at the gym.

    If you are full on sick, stay the **** home. You will just lengthen your recovery by training. Your friend who thinks he can burn through an illness is an idiot.

    I always stop training for a day or two to figure out if it's allergies or an actual cold. I do this more because getting your training partners sick is a douchebag move, rather than being concerned with my personal welfare.
    Shut the hell up and train.
