I've been coached by CTS coaches for a number of years now. One consistent principal they've maintained is that you can't try to make up for past lost workouts. You just move forward with the schedule.
Also if you had strep throat you likely need the recovery time. To the extent you feel like it, I'd do a recovery ride or two, instead of completely off the bike, but otherwise stick with the plan.
You could fall off a cliff and die.
You could get lost and die.
You could hit a tree and die.
OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.
