I have been training for 6 months for the half marathon this weekend. On Monday, I caught a cold. Boo! It's above the neck only - so congestion and sinus pressure, etc; But no coughing, hacking, etc;
Everything I've read online seems to point to the direction that I'm ok to do the half. I don't have health insurance, so I can't ask my doc. :( But I did ask my Dad who I call Doctor Dad as he is an MD. He is ok with me doing the half as long as the cold doesn't move to my chest and I don't push during the race.
I was wondering if anyone has had experience with doing a half while nursing a head cold?
My plan right now is to rest for the next day and a half. Then to walk the first part of the race. Then if I'm still feeling ok, start doing intervals after mile 7. I was hoping for some real experience feedback if anyone has had this particular problem.
Thanks in advance!
