Sorry, I gotta say, working out always makes me feel better…I think you sweat out all the germs 😛

Perhaps you can skip high-intensity but still get exercise in by taking a walk? Gets you moving but isn’t so hard you’ll pass out from exertion.

@envirobride:  I felt that way yesterday – Aunt Flo is coming to visit and I felt like sitting out. But, I made a deal with myself that I would go for 10 minutes, if I felt like crap I could leave.

Depends, do you feel achey or is it a head cold? My doc said that it was okay to work out if it was above your neck. Anything neck down – body aches, tummy trouble then you should stay home and rest up.

lol, I felt the same way and a couple weeks later I’m STILL sick. I actually think working out made me worse because I pushed myself too hard. If you think you won’t overdo it, I’d go, but otherwise I’d do like a PP said and take a walk or do something a bit lighter.

Sorry, I’m no help, but I thought your post was going to be about skipping high school gym class & I was thinking “Wonder what kind of advice she’s getting on that” lol

@les105:  Ditto.  I’m actually kind of disappointed.  ha


Go to the class, sometimes it’s so much better to get moving than it is to stay sedentary!

Well you know, if you ARE getting sick, a workout just might help you feel better faster!  If you’re not going to zumba, maybe try getting out for a walk?

Rule is that if it’s in the head, then go workout. If you are feeling sick in your lungs or stomach… dont do it.

Go, try it out, and if it becomes too much  then at least you can say you tried.

Zumba’s probably a bit much, but why not do some light Cardio? Walk on the treadmill for 20 minutes. It won’t wear you out and you’ll still feel like you accomplished something!  ; )

@envirobride:  listen to your body and rest up.  How often are you working out?  If you really are coming down with a cold, your body needs sleep.  Drink lots of water and try to go to sleep early.  Get back on your workout routine when you are better.

I know what you mean about not being sure if you are wussing out.  I felt this way at times during my wedding fitness but if you are consistent, missing a few days isn’t going to hurt you.  Just get back on the workout wagon when you can.
