The general rule of thumb: Exercising when sick is ok if you feel sick from the neck up--stuffy nose, sore throat, etc. But once it reaches your chest--cough and chest congestion--it's time to take a break.
Well, today I have a sore throat. It's so sore that I can barely swallow! I had planned a run for today, but I'm thinking I should take a break no matter what the "rule of thumb" says. I'm feeling rundown, and I think taking it easy might be the smartest thing to do.
Do you exercise when you're sick? Do you have a rule of thumb that you follow?
