Need your help-training after illness
Hello, I have had the flu (fever, severe muscle/joint pain and sensitivity) but am feeling somewhat better and want to get back to training.
Prior to becoming ill (and I don't believe it was due to overtaining) I was working mostly on turbo with threshold intervals 3x's/week, wkend ride of usually 40-45miles, yoga/core type class 1/wk, 50min run 1x/wk, and weights at gym 1 to 2x's/wk, full rest 1x/wk. I was sleeping okay, AM heart rate staying low.
I'd like some help from the forum as to where I should begin as really need to get back to training. It's emotionally, mentally and physically important that I get back on the bike sooner rather than later.
I train using heart rate monitor as I do not have a power meter. Any advice/suggestions will be appreciated, especially from those who have had the flu recently!
P.S. I'm also due for a VO2 retest in about 4 wks so need to get back up to scratch...and I've got a wk of alpine skiing to plow through in the middle of those 4 weeks.
