Getting ready for CX and just ended a recovery week that followed an 8+ week build (with only a few day recovery block instead of an actual week)… yes I know I should have FTFP and actually taken a week instead of a few days
The thing im noticing is that yesterday(and through most of the recovery week), my legs were heavy and i was struggling to hit decent numbers/watts on the bike.
Is this because:
a) I built for too long, and need more recovery
b) Recovery weeks are supposed to make you feel like crap for a few days after
Its a bit demoralizing to do a bunch of workouts and then feel horrible when the training peak fork/fatigue numbers say I should be feeling better!
