No to the prednisone! re the exercise, are you able to do some "gentle" ones while seated? OR if it is general boredom, why not put on a DVD and watch a favourite movie?

Thanks everyone for the tips! For the past few days, I've ended up taking the dogs for walks (separately), and doing my strength exercises in the house -- I had to walk from one building to another at work on Thursday (about 1/4 mile), and that alone had me breathing hard, so I thought a trip to the gym was beyond me.

I am sitting here laughing at the vision of a tissue hanging out of each nostril - something like you would see in "sick comedies" on TV :-)

The pollen counts are worse at different times of the day, and with different weather/season conditions. I do nearly the entirety of my exercise inside - most of it in my own house walking - putting the groceries/laundry away one at a time. Yesterday it was a 1/2 hr walk getting the groceries from the car and bringing them into the house and then putting them away one at a time, and the day before it was 1/2 hr again, putting the laundry away one at a time and then taking the rubbish and recyclables out to the Wheelie Bin and recycle container in 4 trips. IF the problem is below the neck, don't exercise, if it is above, exercise but be guided by how you feel.

I do know that when I exercise (usually indoors) I begin to feel better. You might try not doing as much or less time. Hopefully, you can do the elliptical at home so that while your nose is running, you don't have to worry about others. (I have been known to put a tissue in each nostril to keep all that stuff from just running out. Not a pretty sight.) lol

The conditions you describe are fairly chronic for me. One thing I often have to do is wait until midday to exercise - for some reason my allergies/congestion get better during the day, worse from dusk to around 10 AM. Therefore I exercise during my lunch hour. Would like to have more time, but with the constraints of my job, this is how it has to be for now.

Hi all!

For the second time this winter, I have what is either a cold or a pollen-related sinus attack -- runny nose, coughing, fuzzy head (figuratively speaking). I would really like to get some activity in today. I don't expect to be doing 45 minutes on the elliptial, but I need to get my blood pumping at least a little. So, I ask of you, when you're feeling a bit puny but not completely bedridden, what sort of fitness do you partake in, and how do you motivate yourself?
