Opinions Wanted - Exercising While Sick
Saturday, April 06, 2013
So I had something like the flu this past week. Not a full-on flu - at least I don't think - but bad enough that I felt crummy. So crummy, in fact, that I didn't feel like I could exercise. It was a struggle just to get out of bed, and for a couple of days there, I didn't even do that.
All the extra sleep did help me to start feeling better. But yesterday, I really had to force myself to lift weights. Afterwards, I felt pretty good - energized.
I wonder though... is it better to just lay around for a week, recovering from whatever illness? Or to just force yourself to exercise, even though it feels like it might kill you? Lol...
I'm not talking about trying to exercise while you're deathly ill, like with pneumonia. I mean exercising while you have, say, a cold. What do you think?
