I was cleaning up my hard drive of old files and I cam across this document and thought that tis the season for colds and flus that it might be worth posting


SYMPTOM
RIDE IF
REST IF

Sniffles
You generally feel okay otherwise
You’re so blocked you can barely breath, even after 10 minutes of light spinning

Fever
It’s 100F or lower
It’s above 100F

Headache
It’s mild enough not to be distracting
Your head is pounding like it did the morning after your 21st birthday party

Muscle Aches or Chills
Don’t Ride
Aches and Chills indicate a more serious full-body infection. Your body needs all it reserves to fight it.

Sore Throat
It’s a little scratchy
Your glands are swollen

Cough
You’re coughing just to clear your throat of excess mucus
You feel like you’re bringing up a lung.

If I feel like the morning after my 21st birthday, I'm not getting out of bed, let alone try to get on a stationary bike...

Funny timing- I am fighting a nasty 'something'- couldnt get a sub and taught off the bike. Didnt think I would but I actually enjoyed it, being able to focus soley on everyone, even the ones in back.
