Recovery week scheduling of workouts

Just looked at my recovery week next week and it occurred to me that it’s putting the higher intensity sessions earlier in the the week.

For a recovery week I think something like the following would be a better schedule. It tends to be the higher intensity work that’s blunted the most whilst you’re recovering.

Recovery day
Short endurance day
Strength Endurance
Threshold or VO2 max

Then move back to the more typical scheduling the week after.


Great suggestion thanks @Phil . Agree and those changes have been implemented. Should show up in coming days.


Just looked and they have turned up for next week already. Means I’ll be tackling the VO2 max session when my forecasted form is -4 rather than -18. Quite the difference.
