Ok, so you may feel recovered from a virus but doing too much to soon is a sure fire way to fuck yourself. And by 'too much' I mean anything much more than a very easy short jog to start with. There's a reason I was out for 6 months last year, and that was just something nasty someone brought to SPOOK, not coronavirus - I kept trying to get back to normal training lwvels in 3 weeks after a relapse. It takes your body longer to fight off and recover from a virus than you think/feel it does. There's no racing for a couple of months so save yourself a relapse when there is racing and be sensible. Even now if I wake feeling like I did then I'm jumpy (hence just had 3 days off)

After talking to a few people you’re definitely right. Time to chill out. This lovely weather doesn’t help mind!

All that said, I'm sure you'll be fine! Great that you have beaten the worst of it.
