Not sure if this borders medical advice but it would be great to see people’s thoughts and if anyone has experienced anything similar.
I’ve been training consistently for about 12 weeks, and progressed steadily from 3.95 to 4.5 watts/kg.
A standard week was aprox 400 TSS with 2 or 3 strength sessions in the gym. I’ve been feeling great.
Recently did a cycling trip and packed 850 TSS within 4 days with structured efforts each day. But since i got back i’ve been feeling completely floored and feeling extremely flat with lots of muscle fatigue. It’s been 11 days since the trip and i’ve been doing nothing but a few zone 1/2 spins and not any closer to being able to get back in to training again.
I’ve been riding for quite some time and a lot of trips away, and also pretty in touch with my body and recovery so something unordinary is definitely happening. I don’t have any other sickness symptoms apart from the fatigue.
Usually i’d be more than ready to get stuck back in to training, so starting to get concerned of an underlying issue, especially when i don’t have any other sickness symptoms to explain what’s happening.
Any ideas would be much appreciated!
