Missed two days

I missed two training days (I’m halfway through SSB) should I just resume tomorrow? Not sure if I’ll be able to finish. I’m still not feeling great.

  • Not clearly stated, but presumably you have a cold or other illness leading to the missed days.

I think people tend to try to return to training sooner than is useful and end up with a setback as a result.

My motto: “When in doubt, sit it out.”

Meaning, unless you really feel recovered and ready to return, you are more likely to cause harm than lead to improvement.


2 days?

  1. That’s ok, you’ve lost no fitness
  2. Give it an extra day if you aren’t feeling up for a workout; as Chad mentioned, many an amateur has come back too soon and wasn’t well enough only to dig a deeper hole
  3. Once well-rested you might find that you crush your next workout

If you’ve got it in you, get on the bike and pedal an easy recovery pace until you feel better. Otherwise, rest.
