Colds Are No Excuse

We all, more than likely, get the common cold every now and then throughout our life. It’s easy to think that you need to stop exercising when this happens. Think again.

If you have an upper respiratory cold that is just starting to exhibit symptoms, go forward with your exercise routine. You may be surprised. Research studies have shown the benefits of this, and I can attest to real-life experience.

Here’s the story: One day recently I woke up with a mild sore throat, felt kind of worn out, and my sinuses were slightly congested with breathing hindered. I could feel a cold coming on. It would have been easy to just not exercise and hope the symptoms took care of themselves.

Instead, I exercised for my standard 30-minute daily regime. What happened? My symptoms dissipated, went away. No medications, either prescription or over-the-counter, no doctor visits, no being laid up and too tired to do anything…nothing except feeling “back to normal”. How nice is that???

Morale of story: Think about trying this yourself, you may like it. 🙂

I found an interesting article about the benefits of exercising when you may think it won’t benefit you and thought I’d share the link here:
