Running and Illness
To a degree, illness is a part of the human condition. Sure, we can reduce our risks of illness, but sometimes we’ll have to deal with being sick and recovering from illness. This page pulls together plenty of resources for a runner dealing with illness.
We also have articles relevant to more long standing illnesses: Running and the Common Cold and Down with the Sickness: Guidelines for Running During and after the Flu.
There’s also our guide How to More Safely Run Races During COVID-19 for those of you who want to scratch your competitive itch during the current pandemic, as well as the more general guide COVID-19: A Trail Running and Ultrarunning Community Guide.
Two more articles worth checking out regarding running and illness: Exercise and the Immune System and What the Heck is a Heart Rate Variability (Clue: It might clue you in that you’re getting sick.).
