Can I?

I had a bit of a cold, blocked nose etc. Had a couple of days off, now I feel fine but have a cough. Its a deep dry occasional cough.

Should I run?

Can I and Should I are two different questions ;)

I tend to go with the former one, but there's people who'd think you were a fool for heading out whilst feeling under the weather.

I think the general feeling is that if it's a cold that's in the head you should be okay... but if it's below the shoulders, then usually best to give it a miss.

sometimes a run when you got a cold is good to sweat it out, but you must not go too fast!I agree with rich, if its shoulders down give it a miss. but i find if the weather is nice, not cold running with a cough is not 2 bad, but if its cold stay indoors!
