    Dont be crazy - If you have a cold the best thing you can do is sleep it off and dont start training till your back at 100%.

    If you try training you wont do very well. You wont recover properly and you'll make it worse/ Save your energy for healing.

    Training will only make it last longer, so get fixed up ASAP so you can get your running shoes on again in a week.

    Same story here...been sick for the past week so I haven't ran at all. However, I still lost a couple pounds just being sick lol From what I understand, when your sick your body's metabolism increases so you burn more calories just recovering from being sick. Guess that's why I lost weight.

    True, but hopefully nobody will go out and stand in a blizzard with shorts and a tshirt for hours.
