I have been down with a flu for the past 1 month. I have been pushing through for most of the Build phase until 1 of the week where i was basically coughing till i couldn’t breath if i ride above threshold.
I went to the doc again and got a xray. Luckily everything was fine but i was still coughing badly.
Eventually, i had to skip 1 week of workout. I just got back to the bike a few days ago and i still have problem pushing power above threshold where my airway will just close up on me.
I am switching to sweet spot workouts for now till i get better.
I did a 15x3 SS yesterday and my hr went higher than usual. Not sure whether its fatigue, sickness or general drop in fitness.
So i am adjusting my ftp down from 260 to 245 thereabouts. Am i being impatient with my recovery? Or the loss is due to fitness?
