With it being cold and flu season (and still in the midst of a pandemic), how should you adjust your running if you get sick?

Do you need to stop completely, merely adjust your hard training days, or something more?

On today’s Run to the Top we discuss…

  • when it’s okay to exercise when you are sick,
  • what precautions and modifications you should make to your routine,
  • when it’s not a good idea to run, and
  • how long it takes to return to fitness after some time off

This is a really helpful episode if you’re on the fence about how to adjust your training when and if you get sick.
