I’ve been sort-of-sick for about a month now, just enough to make it impossible for me to do hard workouts. I’d rather have a bad cold for a week or two and be done with it. From my scale I know I have lost quite a bit of muscle mass already, so I’d take an FTP hit. I’m fine with that.
Quick question: given that I am not doing any races this year, would it be better to restart with base training rather than finish specialization? I was hoping I could finish base-build-specialty this year, but somehow I don’t see the point in finishing specialty after having spent a month off the bike.
PS Advice on how to shake the cold is also appreciated!
