Sorry for a repeat thread, but I was hoping to get some opinions on what to do to get back into training after a bad cold.
The cold hit halfway through the first recovery week in the sustained power build (so I’d already completed the first three week block). According to the plan, I’m due to do a ramp test today (not happening) then crack on with the second block. Instead, I’ve decided to take a couple more days off then finish the week with a couple of rides, with the plan to do the ramp test next week.
In total, I will have had about a week off the bike.
My questions are:
(a) do you think I’ll still be ok to drop back into it next week, or do I need to do some more sessions to build up to this?
(b) I read on a blog post that, when coming back from illness, you should start with an easy(ish) session, followed by something more intense before starting back where you left off.
Can anyone recommend a sequence of sessions that they’ve used to good effect when coming back from illness?
