Should you run when your nose runs?
While we're on the subject of colds, what about exercise or other strenuous activity during a cold-does it hinder the healing process, or is it okay to go about our usual activities as long as we feel reasonably comfortable doing so? If it's only an ordinary cold, with nothing more than sneezing, minor throat irritation, and nasal discharge, exercise the moderation should do no harm, say the sports medicine experts. On the other hand, if you're experiencing more severe symptoms, such as fever, aching muscles, and a severe cough, you probably have the flu and should be in bed. In short, common sense in such situations makes a lot of sense.
