Hi - I'm currently on a week's bedrest with a chest infection & will finish the course of anti-bs early next week so should be up & about again. I'm just wondering if anyone has any recommendations on how long to sensibly leave it before resuming some form of training? (I haven't run for a few weeks now). Thanks!

I wouldnt run until your normal lung function is restored ie. dont do it if you are still wheezing, coughing or feel an irregular tightness in the chest. You may find that the antibiotics work well and clear it up before the end of the course.

Take the first run gingerly, dont go heavy breathing
