Been over a week since the last post, no real difference in that week other than the results from blood tests and throat swab have come back as clear.
On that basis I am have restarted training to see if all is OK.
Wednesday evening I did a very easy 30 mins turbo session and Thursday I did an easy 30 mins run at the gym on the treadmill.
I rested Friday and on Saturday I did a longer turbo of 70 mins with some efforts (85% of max HR for 20 mins). All OK so Sunday I did another 30 minute treadmill run.
I am just leaving work now and will do another turbo session of circa 60 mins this evening. Then it is over to the coach to send through my program for the rest of this week and next and then while I am away.
It’s disappointing how much fitness I have lost through the illness. Hopefully it will come back just as quickly as it went but I am not going to force it. Same with the weight, I am back up to almost 75KG having got down to 71KG but as that may have been a contributing factor to the illness (catching stuff as I was run down, training hard and not eating enough) I am not looking to lose loads of weight too quickly.
It’s only after I have trained for a bit that I will know if June 24th is still on or not. All I can do is start training and hope the fitness comes back.
Thanks for reading.
