Flu Recovery: How long should you wait before resuming training
So, even after getting a flu shot it looks like I managed to catch a bug regardless. Started feeling lousy after doing intervals on Monday and I think I had a fever, but it seems to have broken yesterday afternoon. I'm mostly just resting and am starting to feel a little better now that I've been taking this zicam cold and flu liquid medicine. My resting heart rate still isn't quite back to normal though.
I'm hoping to minimize this training interruption since racing season is really going to pick up in April. Any recommendations about how long I should wait before I get back on the bike? Should I hold off a bit even after I physically feel normal again just so my body can fully recover?
