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?
