Experts say not to resume exercise “too soon” after COVID, but what is “too soon”? There is no definitive time for rest, since the clinicians are learning things about COVID as time goes on. Please remember, there is no way to truly rest your heart and lungs since they need to continually work to keep us alive. Thus, the important thing to remember is that anything that causes these organs to work harder, such as exercise, makes it harder for them to heal. Unlike a broken bone that can be casted to heal, your heart and lungs cannot. Please read the article and discuss with your doctor for further instructions regarding your health. Remember that these are just recommendations and the old adage, that “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”.
