• Training Tip – Should you train when you’re sick?

    When athletes comes down with a cold, they often think they can continue training; after all, it’s “just a cold”. Here’s a good a rule of thumb about training when you’re sick with a cold. If the congestion is in your head and nose, and if you feel well enough to do a workout, go for it. But don’t push the intensity too high. Maintain a level of effort that’s in your aerobic HR range (aka a “conversational” pace). If the congestion is in your chest or if you’re running a fever, skip the workout, no matter how you feel. Pushing yourself when you have chest congestion could worsen your illness or even lead to pneumonia. Rest, drink plenty of liquids and before you know it you’ll feel better and you’ll be back out there.

    Train smart. Race fast.
