I had read this article that talked about exercising when sick. It basically outlined the following.
Don’t exercise when
1. Fever or serious illness
2. Taking medication for symptoms
3. Muscle pain
4. Diarrhea or vomiting
5. Tired, dizzy, or weak
6. Persistant cough or coughing up mucus
Once sickness is gone, start exercising with half the intensity.
7-10 days after recovery you can start new exercise.
Exercise moderately when
1. Have a cold or stuffy nose
5. Watery eyes
6. Sore throat
9. Stomach pain
So basically, I thought I was following this guideline, but after reading it closely for the second time, I realized I wasn’t.
Maybe I should go see my nurse practitioner.
