    It's your heart for crying out loud. Ask your doctor for advice on what you can and cannot do.

    My advice - if youve got pericarditis you probabaly can't cycle - I could barely walk up teh stairs at home!
    And if you've got a virus.... don't train at all ... ever. You could kill yourself!
  • thats what i was thinking buy i dont feel out of breathe going up the stairs just a tightness in the chest the doc did say rest it could take up to six weeks to clear its just bloody annoying
