Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : August 20 2008
40 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, August 21, 2008 rejuvenate 2070510K wk08 TS NEARLY THE END OF WINTER, BUT FOR MANY OF US, THOSE COLDS AND SNIFFLES ARE STILL HANGING AROUND, MAKING LIFE UNCOMFORTABLE. Often the only real solution for this sorry state of affairs is time, plenty of fluids, sleep and nutritious food. But if you're champing at the bit and desperate to get that fitness program back on course, you might be wondering when erghttimeto ba k into the se ear and ex your s. ple is eck ms are ck and up throat -- then sionals agree a won't lead to dire consequences, as long as you avoid elevating your heart rate and body temperature too much. When your symptoms are below the neck -- for instance a tight chest -- it's definitely time to rest. Exercising when you have major cold symptoms, particularly a fever, may well prolong your illness by compromising your immune system as the body puts vital energy into energy production and muscle function instead of fighting illness. If you exercise when you have a fever, your heart not only has to pump blood to your muscles and supply them with oxygen, it also has to pump blood from your muscles to the skin, where the heat is dissipated. When you have a fever, the heart has to work extra hard to get rid of the extra heat. To keep things simple recognise that when Tyour oral temperature is over 37.5C, your body is fighting an infection and needs to be allowed to do the job without being distracted by your fitness ambitions. Attempting to "sweat it out" by exercising may make things worse. Too much T sweating can lead to dehydration at a time when you need extra fluids to loosen congestion. Dehydration can also dry the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract, worsening that stuffy nose and dry, scratchy throat. "When your symptoms are below the neck -- for instance a tight chest -- it's definitely time to rest." If you have a runny nose, sneezing, watery eyes and a sore throat, mild exercise is unlikely to be a problem. Say no to physical exertion if you're coughing, suffering fatigue, have a congested or tight chest, chills, nausea, an upset stomach, aching muscles, diarrhoea or a high temperature.
