    What is a Joe Friel "recovery week" supposed to look like?

    I posted this in the training forum, but only got one reply.

    probably about 7 hours of E1 and E2 riding. nothing higher than endurance power/HR. The excpetion is one day of skills (cornering, spin ups, bumping, form sprints) and maybe a TT test.

    Beer is the Belgian plan. But only for the carb loading taper phase. This is clearly margarita time! *cue mariachi music*

    from what i gather it's a good time to do some testing and compare your results to the last time.

    what i do is typically take an additional day off, do more e1/e2 rides, only 1 interval workout (shortened), and then do an LT test or a personal TT over the weekend and that's about it. of course, catch up on sleep and all that too.

    So, do you basically follow the "3 hard weeks, 1 easy week" thing?

    Do most people do that?

    yeah, i try to. sometimes the schedule gets thrown off with vacations, work, etc. i just try to remember to take one week per month easy, usually toward the end of the month.
