I failed a threshold workout on Wednesday, with a significantly elevated HR relative to previous efforts, and that evening felt a bit rubbish. Come Thursday, I had moderate flu symptoms. I also have slightly enlarged lymph nodes in my groin. Saw the doc, and while he’s running some bloods re. the nodes, he thinks it’s likely a mild infection. Results hopefully Tues/Weds.
I felt largely better this morning, so I thought I’d go out for an easy ride. At mid Z2, HR was c.11-12 beats up on normal, though I felt fine. I decided to call it off after about 25 minutes as the HR wasn’t falling.
Would you all take a bit more time off? I’ll be honest, I’m stressing a bit about the enlarged lymph node [never google symptoms!] and the raised HR. Anyone else been here?
Nb - this isn’t Covid. I’ve had it, and was vaccinated 13 days ago.
