Hey, I have allergies this time of year, and while I realize it's always a bad idea to train sick i figure that a) because allergies last for most of an entire season, far more than say a cold would and b) because allergies (at least mine) don't deplete my energy levels it might work out ok.... but i'm not sure....
what do you think?

Hmm me too, I seem to get chest infections very easily when hayfever kicks in, I`m also sensitive to dairy, allergic to dust, smoke etc....seem to be sneezing 70% of the day and when it feels like you have a bad cold you darent train incase its going to make you feel worse.

If I waited for a day when allergies didn't bother me, I'd never be able to lift. Take an antihistamine and/or decongestant and lift away.
Claritin will be over-the-counter soon. The manufacturer has come out with Clarinex, which is essentially the same drug, as a prescription-only drug, so they can keep their patent rights going.
I saw that avatar on another site and absconded with it.
I forgot about that, hopefully not to long from now

I wish Zyrtec would go OTC- it actually works.
What part of Dallas do you live in? I used to live in Irving. Now I'm in eternal torment down in Cleburne, Home Of The All-You-Can-Eat Buffet.
I am in Euless now, just west of DFW. I moved here about a year ago from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and no one told me any better about Las Colinas or downtown Dallas and I have too much crap to move again. North Texas allergies are not crap compared to South Louisiana, I used to live on Clatrin D and did two years of allergy shots weekly and bi-weekly. Just normally didnít breath from march to may and august through at least September
You will have to give me more details about this buffet; I might have to hit it on my next trip to Austin

I think I may have allergies myself, kinda sucks, but it's not worth no lifting. Course I've lifted with the flu, lol.

i have, or should say HAD bad allergies, which seemed to be getting progressively worse every year. But since I started lifting in March and cleaned up my nutrition and started supplementing with vitamins, minerals and fish oil - NO MORE ALLERGIES. It's like someone just flipped the allergy switch off inside me
I was one of the first people to try zyrtec during trials....wow that stuff f*cked me up. I don't know anyone that it worked for personally, and my mood immediately became suicidally depresed on that stuff.
