    Runny nose while training


    For the past couple months or even longer then that, i cant quite recall....I get a runny nose kinda thing after im all warmed up and hitting the weights. I have to blow my nose a few times during a workout. I also get a scratchy throat which could be from years of smoking. Well the thing is i dont think im sick or anything unless ive had a cold for a very long time, the throat thing gets worse (constantly have to clear my throat). Its quite annoying im just wondering is there any reason for this that i dont know about? i dont think i have allergies, could that be it? Anyone else?

    On the smoking issue, do you smoke menthol?

    I get the running nose part when I am in the garage, since my body temp is higher than the temp in the garage. Thats my take, like when you see kids with running snot in the cold winter time.

    I recall menthol as a whole does not dissolve under alcohol or water solution when my pharmacist buddy showed me.
    I do know that excessive smoking of menthol, especially Newports cause bleeding in the throat. 1st hand in the past, and 2nd hand through general questioning.

    Maybe other peoples core temp is not as high as yours? Not sure, I sweat regardless of the temp lol.

    Are you taking any kind of Beta Alanine supplements?
    I dont smoke, I had similar throat problem, all that time I was on White Flood. I have used all of the White Flood ingrediants except for Beta-alanine. I havent been able to workout for about a month due to a messed up wrist, I figured I better nurse it back to health than to make it a life long thing. To verify that it was white flood, I used it few days ago before work and I had to clear my throat many times. Another thing I noticed is that I didnt get the problems if I take white flood with food, typical BA side effect.
