I am a huge nerd and love metrics and data.
However, I switch that off mentally on my rest weeks.
For instance today I went on a bike ride as it is my rest week. I kept my phone and computer in my pocket and just rode nice and easy and got back home when I got back. I was going for an hour ride but ended up only doing 35 minutes. I smashed it really well the last block and found it more important to take a break from all my stats.
I plan on taking it easy until I feel like I’m ready to get back out there and smash another training block. I’ve been doing this more holistic approach to recovery weeks and I really feel it’s the way to go. I like to wait until I’m really ripping and rearing to go before worrying about metrics and what fatigue percentage to target.
That said, keep tracking everything and see how that amount of recovery worked for you when you analyze your training block.
(Again this is my opinion man) My primary concern is that these metrics are just moving averages or weighted moving averages. Your body is not a moving average. It doesn’t always respond as you are going to hope when using a modeling. You aren’t recovered… until you are recovered.
