Anybody lose strength after mild Covid?

I really only had symptoms for about two days and I didn’t alter my calories or anything. Reps went down significantly.

One of my sons felt fatigued and his strength levels dropped. After a month he was back at his prior levels…

Propbably not a direct correlation to your experience:

I am on day 10. I completely lost my appetite (as well as smell and taste for a few days) to the point where any food that touched my lips caused rapid heart rate and nausea. Lost 7 lbs already.

Yes, I have lost a lot strength and get winded after holding my 30 lbs child for just a few minutes. This shite sucks balls.

I didn't lose strength per se but after having the delta variant back in July my work capacity has taken a definite hit. My 1RM's pretty much stayed the same but I can't crank out nearly as many reps regardless of which lift it is. I get winded really quick now.

I’ve had covid twice and both instances it was a very mild case but it seems to last in my lungs for about 4-6 weeks. I feel fine, I just get winded and tired real easy.

Not sure on strength, but tested positive around the 6th.... ran a 5k today and managed a 10:15 pace. Not great but not horrible.

My lungs weren’t affected. Only symptoms I had were fatigue and body aches.

I had a bad case in August. I still get winded easily and anything with heavy weights kicks my ass.
