How do you know when you are ill?

For me it always starts with a craving for hot chocolate.  If I dont get the craving then I only have a slight snuffle that will irritate me for a few days but won't amount to much.  But hot chocolate means that I will have at least a day in bed (or wishing I was in bed).

  • my health is not in question

  • Running to the bog and exploding from both ends!! 

    But that's proper ill.

    got a pesky cold/snuffles at the moment but still hasn't stopped me training image

  • If I can't eat then I am seriously ill! It doesn't happen often.

  • i eat more

     

  • I stop rabbiting - but if I stop eating it must be really serious!

  • I can't get a hardon

  • I can sing higher notes when I'm about to get a sore throat/cold sort of illness - can always tell when I will shortly lose my voice because it gets a lot better than normal for a few days before.  Strange.

    I usually get what feels like palpitations about 10 days before I develop a cough. Weird.

  • How do I know when I'm ill!?

    Easy, I feel like total shit!

    The problem here I feel is that a lot of people feel like shit most of the time so can't tell the difference.

  • I think it depends on how 'bad' it is. If I start crying at anything/everything then I know it's a virus. If i'm just tired then it's a cold.

  • *touch wood* I don't tend to get ill that often. When I do, it's generally a watered down version of the latest bug to be brought home from school by one of my kids, so usually some form of nausea is the precursor.

    Sounds like overtraining Doesnt it. that brief feeling of huge improvement that makes us push harder then produces a below par performance when it counts, or maybe that is just this newbie.

    It does a bit doesn't it.  Although I am too lazy to have experienced overtraining when it comes to running, so can't say for certainimage
