Can I still run if I have a cold?

As a general rule, exercising if you are below par is inadvisable because you could prolong your illness. If you just feel a little bit blocked up with an occasional runny nose then a light session is usually OK.

However if your cold is more severe, making you feel generally unwell and/or with aches and pains then exercising should be avoided. If in doubt, check with your doctor and give your session a miss until you are fully recovered.

I have recently pulled my groin whilst running, should I continue training or should I take some time of for it to heal. I have tried swimming instead but not sure how this will help me running longer distances.

I get a stitch on my right side at the bottom of my rib cage, every run that I do. It sometimes moves over to my left but not very often. Is there anything that you can suggest? I've tried putting my hands in the air, squeezing my water bottle and I stop to stretch but it always comes back. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
