How old are you? Training Peaks recommends 2:1 if you’re over 40. Or maybe you’re doing too much during your base weeks? I tend to feel somewhere between your 1) and 2). I could keep on training at the usual level, but feel like it would do me no good – old niggles start to reappear, too.
I realize this might be too broad and nebulous to pin down but curious on other’s thoughts on how one should feel during a recovery week. Should you
1) still be chomping at the bit but hold back that week on purpose
2) feel like you’re pretty fatigued and thank goodness this is a recovery week
I’m asking as I’m in the middle of a recovery week and am feeling more like #2. I’ll see how I feel after a few more days but trying to decide if I should repeat my last cycle or maybe switch to a 2:1 base:recovery schedule vs. my current 3:1 base:recovery schedule.
