Plenty of sleep, try to eat “clean” and rest, then let the Flu run its course. Be thankful it didn’t hit on race week.
I bought the awesome Training For the Uphill Athlete book, and at 40, I’m still Learning and enjoying mountain running. I especially do KV and sub-50km races.
I have two races planned at the end of September, and the preparation was going very well.
Last Saturday I made a hard workout, breaking my PR on a 1h15m ascent (1600m D+ steep uphill route), with awesome feelings.
On Sunday, another good workout (less intense of course), and….
It’s two days that I feel off. I have a cold, general pain, and I was forced to cancel two sessions.
It’s strange because it never happened before, such a fast decline from feeling perfect, to feeling very broken.
Any advices? I guess I need some more days off until the flu goes away, it’s a pity because it’s going to ruin part of the fitness level I was at.
Any other tips for a faster recovery?
