    At least you can take pride in being patient zero. Remember to struggle into work and start spreading it about.

    I’ve had a sore throat for a month if that counts 🙁

    Same here. Came down with it straight after the 24/12 as my body cried for help. It is taking a while to shift so it’s steady weight training only for me, better than nothing.

    I’ve head a really nasty cough. It developed from manflu in to a nasty dry cough, still coughing but coughing bits up and another round of headcold. So far, about 4 weeks. hope to be rid of it just in time for the weather to improve 🤞

    Had a chesty cough for about 2 weeks now. Really sore throat and lots of green stuff coming up.

    It’s been getting better the last couple of days.

    Gargling with soluble aspirin really helps with the sore throat.

    Yes. Cold turned into a chesty cough which I can’t seem to shift. Just have to be patient and ride it out.

    Yep, two weeks and counting, went out on bike sunday but even just spinning the legs my HR was up at the level normally seen midway throguh a XC race so I gave up.

    Yep, feels like the cough I get after a really hard running effort but this one sticks around rather than disappears after a couple of hours. I’ve had mine all summer since May, off to the docs tomorrow to see if there is anything to worry about.

    If it’s bronchitis try ibuprofen, bronchitis is inflammation of the airways and ibuprogfen is an anti-inflammatory.

    Thanks globalti,I,m afraid I,m not allowed to take Ibuprofen with my asthma.On a more positive note I have just had curry and coke and I feel a good bit better.Pouring with sweat must do the trick.

    I guess the early autumn thread is the answer.

    Columbian flu for a couple of days following a small social gathering. That’s the trouble when mixing with the great unwashed.

    My two boys have been coughing persistently for the past couple of days.
    However, seeing as they are both collies I’m assuming it’s a bout of Kennel Cough.

    I woke Monday morning gagging on my uvula. It was half way down my throat. When I checked in the mirror it was so inflamed that I couldn’t see the back of my mouth. Its back to normal size now but my throat is really sore and it’s therefore difficult to drink.

    Oooh not just me then. Been ill for about 4 weeks now. Started with a chest infection then cold, now sinus infection and cough. Just got a new bike so hoping I’ll shift it soon.

    Someone said pollen been particularly bad this year and can cause complications with a cold.

    Hoping nothing comes of it, but felt quite run down today and a definite feeling of throat becoming lurgified, should have gone out in the dry weather but ended up in bed and just about forcing myself through a VO2 max Zwift session a while ago.

    Our whole street has had bronchial flu.
    Two weeks of headaches and snot .Swiftly followed by an enforced 3 day bed rest plus a dry cough which eventually turns wet(think Neil in the young ones sick,man).
    I’ve had the cough for 4 weeks now but a good steam at the weekend really fettled me up.

    Fine here but last year I had a dry cough that lasted almost 16 weeks I think it was. I’m pretty fit and healthy too so was a bit of an eye opener and the doctors didn’t seem particularly worried when I eventually went. So not really sure what my point is other than they really can last for ages and it’ll go away at some point.

    Only a week here,cant imagine what 16 weeks feels like.
