I’ve not tested positive because I haven’t been tested, but I’m 90% sure I’ve got it.
I live in Switzerland and went away for a stag weekend so I’m not sure if my early symptoms were that or a prolonged hangover. The first time I didn’t feel right was a few days after that weekend, going out for runs but feeling heavy and short on breath. By the following Friday I had a headache and tiredness, and just wanted to go to bed early.
The next day i had mild flu like symptoms, headache, jaw, eye socket, lower back aches, mild fever. I woke up Sunday night short of breath. For the following week my symptoms gradually subsided except the dry cough. (my girlfriend who I live with also has this but without the flu symptoms)
I tried to return to the indoor trainer for low intensity rides and both times the shortness of breath came back the night following. With last Saturday and Sunday being the worst. Today I feel I’m getting better again and have decided to take the week off no matter how I’m feeling.
My advice to anyone that thinks you have it is to rest up until you are sure you are over it. You can’t train if you can’t breathe and you might well prolong the infection.
This is my experience. I am relativity young (32) and fit doing triathlons for the past couple of years, I don’t smoke or normally drink (except that stag weekend) relatively good diet. I think I caught it the weekend of the 7th March and still have symptoms. I normally have mild asthma but do not take any medication for this.
