Am I in postpeak?

How to recognize if I went from peak to “postpeak” period? I had great legs and feeling until 2 weeks ago and now I’m struggling and even I’m reducing my training the feeling, results and Whoop recovery is not getting better…

Maybe that has something with my sons chickenpox… I had them as a kid and don’t have any symptoms but maybe my immune system is fighting the virus even I have immune resistance…

When did you last have a recovery / rest week?

I think that I’m playing it safe… every third/fourth week I take multiple days (almost a week) without intensity, I always have one day off per week (sometimes two), I have max two (max 3) days of intensity per week…

Do you track HRV / Resting HR daily? Wondering if that might pick up if you’re fighting a low level viral infection from the chicken pox you mention.

Hi,

it somehow matched with the time my son started to showing first symptoms about 10ish days ago.
here is the last 7 days in whoop but it started a few days before. Before my respiration rate was constant but now is about 1.5 higher than usual…


Perhaps just take it easy for a while then get back into it when metrics start to look good again.
