Return from illness...need advice!
Ok, so I was just about to start week 6 of a 10 week training program leading up to NYC Tri (July 26) when I got hit with abdominal virus, dehydration, fever, Emergency room, 3 nights in the hospital, the works. Just released today (6/19). HOPE to resume some sort of exercise by Monday. Supposed to do a flat sprint distance tri on 6/26. What should I do?
I'm due for a recovery week the week of 6/29 (week 8). I'm wondering if I should just start (HOPEFULLY) the recovery week this week (6/22) and then carry through with weeks 6, 7, 9, and 10 until NYC Tri.
I know this is a complicated one, but I've worked hard for the base I have and have worked hard on this program so far, and hate to lose it all to a virus they can't even name. ANY advice is welcome.
