The hour change coincided with the arrival of the cold!

Now, with the smaller days, most training is done at night and with lower temperatures.

Invariably, more colds occur at this time of the year and most runners wonder if it would be beneficial to continue running even in this state.

RM Trainer saw fit to discuss this point as it is a very likely scenario from now on and it will be important that we protect ourselves as best as possible.

When it comes to a cold that does not present major symptoms, you can continue to run (as long as it is not in the rain), as this may even be beneficial in fighting this situation, contributing to the strengthening of the immune system.

However, if the symptoms are more severe, similar to those that define a flu-like condition, it is recommended to stop and wait for the situation to improve and feel completely restored.

Anyway, if you have any doubts it is always a good idea to consult your doctor!

After the recovery period, when you start training again, you should start with very light training as your body is not yet at its maximum capacity. Here, a qualified Trainer can easily help with this process.

RM Trainer then hopes that colds/flus stay away from you as long as possible so that you can enjoy unrestricted running and training.

Always remember that we are what we eat and how we feel depends a lot on our diet! Take cover…
