I have just been signed off work with pneumonia - bit of a shocker as I thought I had a virus.
Can anyone share their experineces with me here on returning to running and how to tailor you training. I am a member of my local running club and train 2 nigths a week with the club , plus a long run at the weekend.
I should add that I have a place in the Grizzly on 10 March !
Thanks in advance all
As said above, just be very careful about it.I had pneumonia Christmas last year and took quite a while to get back into. The main problem was that I had torn a few intercostals and this is what took getting back into exercise really tough. I just started easy, only doing what I could do comfortably. I'm also a swimmer, and found this a bit tougher to get back into then running. I did find that I could bike ok and use the x trainer...so might be worth, once you've recovered a bit, to join a gym. It helped not being out in the cold, and could do some light weights and light cardio which helped build back my strength.It is horrible, but just make sure you are completely better else it will just linger!
