Should you go swimming if you have a bad cough?

It kind of depends on what kind of swimming you will be doing. If its just splashing around and relaxed swimming you should be ok. However, if you are planning to go to swim practice I would take a little more precaution. As a competitive swimmer, the water above the pool is FULL of chlorinates that make it harder to breath. If you have a cough, these chemicals are not the healthiest to breath in, and you also run the risk of passing your virus to your team mates. It is a total judgement call on your part, but as a competitive swimmer I would say probably will struggle with your hypoxic sets and have a terrible practice in general.
