Training and having a cold
I have come down with a sinus type cold - you know the type, sniffling running nose, headache, all-around blah feeling. Could use some rest, but I haven't ridden in two nights. I have a 20mile training ride tomorrow with my Team In Training group, will I be OK , or will it kick my butt so I can't make it to work on Monday? I guess this is a silly question, but it will be in the 20s and 30s with 16mph winds.
Bottom line is it OK to train through these little illnesses. I think I used to do that when I was running in college and it sometimes helped shake the bug.
