So the winter months are here and man flu is rampant.

My question is, do you let it keep you out of the gym?

Sometime when I train and I am feeling sick it actually makes me feel better ( which is a result of the endorphoin release I assume.

Then again sometimes I go in there and feel rubbish and the lackluster workout out leaves me feeling worse than before.

If I don't think I'm contagious, then I train.

On the occassions I feel really rough, I'll do a different training session to normal. I then have no reference point to how poor the session is going!

Normally, I'll end up feeling a bit better after training.

Im gonna go home after work and grab my gym gear and hit a session, even if it isnt all out war, somethings better than nothing.

Worst comes to the worst, I feel terrible in teh morning, at least its Saturday and I can just stay in Bed.

Agree with Glens. I train anyway. But I do go easy when I'm ill.

I like that thought process.

The session went ok, however because my routines are based on high density I found myself getting light headed a fair bit and had to cut a couple of sets short, but glad I went in.
