What’s the rule for training when you’ve got a cold?
As winter approaches, so too does cold and flu season. Temperatures drop, people start spending the majority of their time indoors, and your chances of catching a cold or virus increase.
Offices are a breeding ground for germs to spread, with research showing that desks and door handles are crawling with viruses and bacteria. One study by The University of Arizona revealed that the average desk hosts 400 times more germs than a public toilet seat.
If you’re a fit person, you are less likely to be struck down with flu, but you’re not invincible. A study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine in 2010 found that people who exercise regularly are nearly half as likely to get a cold. However, even the fittest among us get unlucky. What happens if you do fall ill and you want to continue training?
