Recovering after illness

Dear Sufferfest!

Let me suggest to you to make an "after illness protocol". I'm just over a 1 week illness, and try to rebuild my form, but couldn't find any instructions for that. Maybe an "after illnes video" would be useful too, with a manual of setting the time and percentage of intensity step by step regarding our 4dp profile.

Yours sincerely: Tamas Bezzeg

  • Earlier this year I was ill for a week.  Fortunately I was only a couple of weeks into a program, and just went back to the beginning again.  However, if I was only two weeks from finishing I would have liked to know how to resome the program.

  • Since it's the cold season now and therefore the season for catchning a cold as well I would really emphasize to give us Sufferlandrians some guidance back on track to suffering. 

    Right now I'm "suffering" from a common cold and I wonder how to deal with the necessary break in terms of the training plan I was into before the cold struck me. Shall I get back to point zero? Is threre a need for another 4DP test? Or do I have to step back into the plan right where I had to suspend it but with a protocol of reduced intensity? 

    These are valid questions every cyclist has to deal at least once a year, espacially during the indoor season aka suf as in spring, summer, fall and suf.

    So has the team already come up with an idea? I'd really appreciate it.
