Recovering from chest infection

Postby bwfc4eva868 » Tue May 15, 2012 11:59 am

Well i have had the dreaded chest infection for 1.5 weeks now. Finish my antt biotics this evening. Now i still have phlegm coming up but its mostly white now and not as often. Did a little jog and chest felt a bit tight, but no worse than say if i smoked. Which i have stopped thankfully.

Thinking of doing a short 10 mile ride tomorrow as its been a month since i have rode, due to work and obviously getting this gooey mess.

I agree, take it easy and let your body recover. Chest infections can get nasty, and it puts your body under a lot of strain.

Gentle exercise!

So a shortish 10 mile ride will be fine. Its not massively challenging, few small hills, but its mainly Technical woodland single track.

Just itching to get back on the bike as its been ages.

Whatever you feel comfortable with really. Remember your fitness will have naturally dropped, and you might feel more tired than usual anyway after a bug - so the ride might feel harder than you expected.

I think I'll just head out with an Idea of a place i want to get to and if i feel tired I will get the train back. Will leave the moors out for a few more weeks while i build up my fitness. On the plus side, i feel better for giving the ciggies up.
