The English grammar here is impossible. You cannot have a past hypothetical situation with a command. Is the Romanian sentence possible? (English native speaker)

It's a conditional phrase, but not a hypothetical one. The actual English translation should be: "If you have been running, do not drink cold water". Makes more sense?
