This weekend i rode 123 km in Saturday, and 40 Km yeasterday (total climb 2500 meters). And made mistake in choice of clothing for Saturday ride based on some weather forecast on the net. So very strong and cold wind all ride, and i did not have proper clothes for that. Anyway after yesterday ride i feel like a small fever which i ignore it, today went with my city bike to finish some works i had, and now im with 38 deg temperature.


So how u do in this kind of condition? Staying in bed and take some rest, or going for easy ride (proper clothing definitely :) )

If u stay in bad, when do u start ur riding again?

Unless you're getting paid to ride your bike and stand on a podium, I'd let your body recover --- it's trying to tell you something.

A few days of R&R will do much more for your fitness and training than trying to fight through a ride while sick

Thanks for replies.

Seem that was wise idea to take a rest yesterday (today feeling much better, temperature is about 37.2).

some general wisdom from a couple pros/coaches shared to me - if its above the chest, go ride lightly. use it as a recovery day - will help get your blood oxygenated and aid recovery from the cold.

if its below the neck, stay home. dont stress the lungs.

as for when to get back on, well this is from a really sick period, but whenever you wake up and feel good to ride - wait one more day.

You risk damaging your heart, if training hard when having cold/flue/fever. Don't do it, and don't get back to training until the illness is gone, gone, gone. Starting when not fully recovered risks repeat suffering.

My friend used to skip rest and even sometimes raced while having fever. He died at age 36 while training. He just had a heart attack and died in the ambulance.

While viral myocarditis and cardiomyopathy is a real entity, and can lead to heart failure, dysrhythmias and even the need for transplantation, the progression from a run of the mill viral illness to myocarditis is not determined by exercise during a cold. It has to do with the pathogenesis of the infection and the host response.

A few years ago I made the stupid mistake and dosed myself with meds to get me through a 4 day cycle tour. Easy riding but 160-180km per day. Almost ended up in hospital the next week and ended up on bed rest for more than a week. I no longer take those chances, I'd rather take a few days off the bike now and get better than do more harm.

10 years ago as I was 40 y.o. I trained although I had a cold (that was what I was thinking...)....and I almost died! :shock:
It turned out that I had a virus that slowly came to my heart as I was training again and again.
A luck for me that I went to the hospital one day as their diagnostic was a acute heart attack which should occur in the next minutes (!!!!!!). :shock: :shock: :shock: injections, ambulance to the next big hospital (7 min during the doctor told me I would "may" survive), surgery room etc... and it was not a heart attack but a myocarditis. I have been VERY lucky to survive (the next day of training would have been my last day of my life they told me! :smartass: ) and I have not any heart arrhythmia (many of them die in the next 5-7 years I was told). BUT I should not go in the red zone anymore the doctors told me. However they also told me top continue to do sport! So I continue to bike around 10-15k per year and actually enjoy it more than before ("survivor effect"). My old days of racing (I was a very good Cat 1. in France many years ago) are over anyway and I try not to go in the red zone anymore (I try...)

Key learning: if you are tired etc..check if it is really a cold or a virus. If it is a virus, you really should not train anymore and you definitely have to rest. Or start to think about your next life.....

When i was younger (like 20-25), have ride many times with some cold which i understund it was stupid idea... When i posted this thread, in same time i have read about same question.. Good idea that i decided then to just rest and ride after im healthy again.. And glad that i post it this thread, since im sure that many other ignore the cold and flu and ride with that condition.... :)
