I'm sick. If I gave it a number out of ten, ten being hospital, I'd be a 3.5. What can I do to get me threw 80 minutes of hockey?

Only reason I really want to play is I just bought new gloves and a new mirrored visor:)

Thoughts?

I've always loved to play when having a cold, it feels like you aren't sick at all while on the ice even if you felt miserable minutes before. The aftermath also feels good; i honestly think it helps getting rid of the virus. But don't believe everything i say, it may just be an impression...like those kids who think smoking weed helps them concentrate in school.

I agree with the above poster. I feel like skating with a minor cold helps me sweat it out a bit. Again I could be wrong and it just being mental but I like to think it helps.

Likewise...Down some Sudafed, and go play. It'll work Wonders! Even without the Sudafed. Nothin like an ice rink to clear up a cold.

Drink plenty, and sweat it out. Works wonders for colds and hangovers.

I personally agree with the healing effects of hockey on colds, could be some kind of placebo effect but I reakon it still works :lol:

You bought a mirrored visor? The cold is the least of your worries.

Agreed, go play and sweat it out. I played pickup at a local outdoor rink for five hours one night when I probably should not have even considered it, and I really think it help me get healthy a good deal faster... now about the cramps I got in my legs...

I've played with pneumonia, against the doctors orders, so I'm probably not the best person to give advice on this topic. I do agree with the guys that have mentioned feeling better on the ice with a cold, I can usually breathe much better on the ice than at home when I have a cold.

I played with a cold a couple weeks ago while drugged up on Tylenol. Felt great during the game, but since that game, I've been coughing up a lung!

I agree just drink a lot of fluids before and after and just sweat it out.

When I'm sick I like to go to the rink and inflict my misery on others aswell, my top tip for spreading the virus would be to use as many different water bottles as possible.
Street hockey is great for kids. It's energetic, competitive, and skillful. And best of all it keeps them off the street.

Skip the Sudafed, instead just take a Halls about 10 minutes before the game and be sure to have plenty of fluids in you before and during.

For fun, eh? Maybe try crossdressing, too - it could be amusing.

As long as it's not settling in your chest and causing you shortness or difficulty breathing go for it. The increase in activity will clear your nose for a while.
