I enjoyed my anniversary on the last hard day of ssb2, um, a little too much (think a whole cheesecake) and I had let my nutrition slip over the mtb season. I was floating at +5lbs over race weight and was not worried about it, but 3 separate Thanksgiving dinners and said cheesecake later and I saw +9lbs the first morning of my recovery week so I freaked out and decided to pop open MyFitnessPal this week. I have dropped back down to +3lbs this morning, though I feel dehydrated so maybe +4.
The thing is, my recovery rides seemed harder than the threshold work in my plan. Have I sabotaged my recovery week? Ramp test tomorrow.
Are recovery weeks a good time to cut Calories or not?
