Any runners here done a race while having flu?
It should be common knowledge that it can be dangerous for runners to do road races while they have the flu, or even too soon after their flu ended, but some runners still do it anyway. Have any of you (runners) run a race while having or still getting over flu and not ended up with an injury or feeling worse? Perhaps you even felt better after the race?
You should not really run at all. especially race in an event. Just ask your Doctor. You can do yourself serious harm
I have never run a race while having the flu. I just had a case of the flu a few weeks ago and I could barely get off the couch never mind run. I would never, ever, consider running in a race either while I had the flu or shortly after getting over it.
Running with the Flu is bad news. Your entire system is weakened, and it is not uncommon for people who run with the flu to suffer heart problems. If, as you point out, a runner feels better after the run it is probably because the runners system was almost back to normal.
However, other injuries are likely, because the body was in a weakened state.
