Default The Sniffles

two major rides this weekend and i am hit with a cold. between now and this weekend is a run and a swim. luckily the cold is above my throat. i'll take it easy and won't do any intense workout.

what do you do when you get the sniffles?

i'd still go for the ride unless i'm feeling feverish. nothing clears my sinuses better than a run or ride, not on the swim though as slightly colder ang water ngayon.

Zinc and Ascorbic acid supplements can help, as well as Paracetamol with antihistamines. Native honey can also help. I stay away from mass-produced honey. Get as much sleep as you can, or find time for an afternoon nap.

ascorbic acid + calamansi or orange juice + chicken soup or noodles + sleep works wonders.

One time - May sinat at sipon ako bago umakyat ng The Wall... Pagdating sa Wall 2.. Wala na.. I guess riding more makes my sickness gone or I get sick if I dont bike.. hehehe

Does anyone here experienced na after a long time of not riding ( 2 weeks for expample ), madalas kang sipunin or ubohin.. A fellow rider who is a doctor today me na, hinanap daw kse ng katawan ko ung pag ride..

Kaya after that.. I made sure na may recovery ride ako kahit mga 20k lang midweek, after nun hindi na ako gaano nasipon if ever mabakante.

**Vitamins and minerals are still the best.

my 2 cents.
Nasan na ang TAPSILUGAN dito?!

Haven't been riding for about a week now because of those news about bikers becoming roadkill. During the downtime, been eating a lot of those god forsaken brownies and fruitcakes the neighbors seem to re-gift year in and year out and I can see the double chin is slowly making it's appearance.

I have a bike ride tomorrow but looks like I got the sniffles from the Christmas list shopping in the Greenhills tiangges today and yesterday. I hope this doesn't turn into a fever tomorrow. The muscles are a little on the achy side.
