Fed up. Started with a cold last week, and now it's gone onto my chest so I'm all phlegmmy - mmmm - nice.

Any idea how long this takes to clear up ? I'm being sensible and not exercising (any excuse) but wanted to run a 10k at the weekend. Now looking a bit dodgy for me. :-(

Doctor doctor - fading fast....

Anyone else got this horrible chest ? I keep seeing runners going past and I have an urge to trip them all up. Not fair. I wanna play too.

I'm sulking.....

Here I go again.

If you're sick don't run. Plenty of rest, fluids with some Paracetamol if you have a fever. If the symptoms get worse, or persist for more than a few days go to your GP.

DO NOT run this weekend, even if you're starting to feel better. In a competitive situation you will try harder and be braver, if oyu are sick you risk doing permanent damage.

See my previous rants about running with a virus :-))

get well soon - and don't sulk too much - you'll be back before you know it.

Thanks Simon.

I have been a good patient, and not run so far, but today my chest seems to be better. But my energy levels are low, so weekend does seem a bit silly.

Thanks again.

Cougie - might be worth trying Potter's Vegetable Cough Remover...if you're okay with the taste of liquorice. I always take it when I have a cold or cough and it works a treat. I'm not a big fan of herbal remedies normally, but this is one that does seem to do its stuff.

Thanks Meerkat - I'll have a look for it at the weekend. It's not Harry Potters is it ?

No, sadly not - although the list of ingredients reads like Hagred's shopping list...should be quite widely available: I got some in a Holland and Barret's in Bridgwater a couple of weekends ago.
