throat & training

Post by Thilo Pann » Wed, 22 Jan 1992 02:01:30


I have a throat ( but no feever ) since mid December
and i did not want to swim, bike or run until it
has gone away.
Does anyone know if there is any danger to train
with a throat lasting such a long time or is it better
to wait ?

Thank you

My experience has been that swimming long distances
at low speed actually helped me over my throat. I stop
running at such times just as an excuse for not having
to run but I usually also continue training on my
bicycle. I think the word here is take it easy. No
hi reps hi speed just keep your muscles souple and
keep the water running thru your head.

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.
