There are so many individual health issues with a cold that you must talk with a doctor before you exercise when you have an infection.

Lung Infection – don’t run! A virus in the lungs can move into the heart and kill you. Lung infections are usually indicated by coughing.

Common cold? There are many infections that initially indicate a normal cold but are not – they may be much more serious. At least call your doctor’s office to get clearance before running. Be sure to explain how much you are running, and what, if any medication you are taking.

Infections for the throat and above the neck – most runners will be given the OK, but check with the doc.
