Congrats on your success. If you could do that in the midst of the Big Vert plan with all it’s ME load you’re going to see huge gains with you complete the plan.
As for recovery after an event like this: There is no set time. A week seems short to me however. It depends on how taxing the race was for you. If it was a stretch and you had to dig very deep into your reserves then a month might be more appropriate. If you’ve been feel the bounce in your step with you bound up a set of stairs then probably you are ready to ease back into training. I say ‘ease’ because you want to have all your spidy senses attuned to pull back if, a few days or even week from now, you realize that in fact you are still tired. I often see that after a big over reaching effort, maybe it is a heavy training block or big single workout or race the fatigue does not come to the surface for several days up to 10 days.
So proceed but do it with caution. I’d start back with a load of bout 50-60% of the biggest week so far and see how you feel with that as a test.
