So I started feeling a cold coming on last Monday but kept on with my normal routine, hoping it would pass. Friday was 4th of July and we went to see fireworks. Due to traffic (3 hours for a normally 20 min drive) we didn't get home until after 2 a.m. I think the late night gave the cold a jump start because I woke up feeling horrible Sat. I rested all day Sat, Sun and most of Mon. Today I am still congested and have a wet cough (sorry tmi). Not sure if I should attempt the gym or not? Maybe just a long bike ride? Or rest again? Not sure if I'm being a baby or not lol. I'm normally a very active person so it's hard to just sitting around.

I would stay away from the gym and do a short walk or light strength training

Thanks for the input!
I have a pretty intense class scheduled for Friday and I know it will kick my butt if I don't do SOMETHING before then.

Head cold- yes

Cough- NO! A cough can turn into an upper respiratory or pneumonia. 

As per my Personal Training books ( and my physicians..)

Thanks! I went with the bike ride. I didn't want to be blowing my nose every 15 mins with people around. The cough has gone away for the most part now so I'm crossing my fingers I will be good by tomorrow!
