Is it fine to run when I have a cold?

If you have a simple cold without fever then it is completely fine to run. In fact, running during a cold can open up airways leading to faster recovery. Many runners find themselves being able to get rid of their cold just by running, including me.

On the other hand, if you have even a mild fever or body ache, this could mean that you have a viral infection. In this case, if you run, it can elevate your body temperature causing your fever to increase. Hence, it would be best to avoid the run and rest.

SUGGESTED: Run Safely in the Rains
