Regarding colds and training, I've been told that it's o.k. to train as long
as the cold is "above the shoulders" i.e. sore throats, congested sinuses,
etc. However, I remember that the other side of the same rule was never to
train with a chest cold, bronchitis, walking pneumonia, or a fever. This all
seems pretty much like common sense anyway.
I also remember a recent article that said that training in cold weather may
increase your risk of upper respiratory infections. Upper respiratory
infections fall into the "trainable" category above. The February issue of
Bicycle Guide (US mag.) is out and has tipe on riding in cold weather.

Nobody but me has any idea what I'm doing; and I don't know either.
