I have a cold. A clogged head, congested sinuses and a sore throat, accompanied by a cough. It's been around for about a week.
I've stayed off the bike because I haven't really felt well enough to head out in the cold weather we've had this past week.
However, I feel like I'm starting to recover, and I'm itching to get back on the bike.
My question: At what stage do you get back on the bike? Does riding slow the recovery process (I've heard that the immune system can be suppressed by exercise)? Should I have just kept riding right through?
