4 weeks ago I got ill, probably I had quite hard sinusitis. For a few days I had fever, sore muscles, I was very very weak, plugged nose and facial pain… Doctor prescribed antibiotic – Moloxin. But it didn’t help much so probably it was more of virus than bacteria infection.
I completely stopped training for 10 days. Afterwads as I began to feel better I gradually returned to training – for 7 days only zone 1 & 2.
However since then my HR is elevated comparing to what it was before the disease. Previously when jogging (pace ~6:00) my HR was about 130, now it’s 140-145. I can’t run uphill now staying in Z2, I have to walk painfully slow, otherwise my HR goes up to Z3…
Today I had in my plan 10′ in Z3 – ~170 HR. Previously this training was always challenging to me – heavy breathing, the feeling that I’m pushing myself really hard and so on. Today I felt like it was more like the end of Z2, my breathing was not very intense while the HR was very high 170-172.
Is it still the impact of that disease? Anything I should worry about? Should I stop my training till the HR come back to normal or can I continue with trainig and everything will get back to normal after some time?
During the day I feel good, I sleep well, I’m not tired, etc. Basically everything is fine besides the elevated HR…
