Exercise After Illness
How can you know if you are too sick to exercise? If you have a hacking cough, pressure on your chest, a fever, an upset stomach, or fatigue and aching muscles, give your body a rest. It is usually okay to do mild to moderate activity if you have a cold without these symptoms.
