SWEAT A COLD?

Didn't I read somewhere that one should sweat out a cold and that running 8-10 miles while in the semi-grips of a stuffy nose and sore throat is a good idea? I'm off for what I'll try to make a long run. It feels like a long run kind of day.

Update: Success is mine. I ran a nearly effortless 8 miles even in the throes of a cold and it felt damned wonderful.

what do you do for shin splints?

Sex is always good for that. Now that you have a boyfriend you should hook it up. :-?

Good for you.

I got tired just reading about the 8 mile run.

One word for incipient colds: Zicam.

steam...boil water in a kettle, inhale the steam with a towel covering you...drain that cold out of you. It will be gone fast. My dad prescribes all the medicine in the world, but when the doctor needs a doctor, that's his only remedy.

Cheers.

tish! am flabbergasted by your running power. (and not a little jealous) I nearly died in the gym yesterday running for 3 minutes. Call yourself a nerd?? A friend of mine insists that if you can talk in full sentences then you shouldn't be able to stand up without falling over... I think this is only right and fair... You're not supposed to be literate and able to run 8 miles without dying! I think I hate you! (I mean this in the nicest way possible of course!)

AHD: I still love you!

Okay...somewhat off topic...I am looking to invest in a really good and solid pair of running shoes. I have been let down by Asics and looking to branch out. Any advice?

SabilaK said...

Irrum, I LOVE my Asics. They've been better than any running shoes I've had in the past. Why have they disappointed you?

They are just not comfy. After the fifth mile, there is no shock-absorption. Maybe I just need to trade them in for a newer model. You know, I love shoe shopping, but shopping for a new pair of tennies...it's just far too complicated.
