Shingles/Chicken Pox & Training?
Has any one here ever had shingles and if so when did you return to long distance cycling? My dermatologist diagnosed me with shingles last week and although I feel o.k. I want to rest up before I start training again. At first I thought the bumps were poison ivy and they are not widespread-but he said it was shingles. Yikes! The doc did say I could resume riding whenever I felt like it but I want to be cautious and help speed recovery as much as I can. So far I have not ridden or worked out for 4 days...Any experiences or ideas would be Greatly Appreciated!
