Exercise bringing on illness?

Options
Lately, every time I've been exercising, I feel a lot of drainage coming up in my throat, like I'm getting the flu or something. Why is this? I feel fine when I'm not exercising?

    I would watch out and see if it gets worse. I get a runny nose and sinus drainage when I workout, but this is mainly do to my allergies (even though I workout indoors). If you feel like you're sick, slow down. These might help you to target what's going on easier. Is this something that has been going on for a few sessions or over a week? Are your sinus's usually congested? Are you working out in a very cold room or area? Do you workout indoors or outdoors? Are you keeping hydrated? Are you breathing from your nose or mouth? It should at least, help you narrow down what's causing it a little. But if you feel sick, slow down. It's not worth the risk of hurting yourself and making your sickness worse.

    I exercise about 20-30 minutes a day, 5 or so days a week. And not that I'm aware of. :(
