I was thinking about taking an extra rest day..... but its sunny outside and the TT bike is just sitting there, all inviting......  (although I would have to swap the turbo tyre...mmmmm???)

I would love to ride the bike now but reading this from work sooooooo ....

Ah, I feel I should say something wise like you should have reduced it to {x}%, but I'd be making it up ... but what I do think though, that if you are tired, listen to your body and maybe take a couple of days off, you could be coming down with something. 

I was proper knackered on Sunday after a swim and a run and can still feel it now.  Going to have a day off today ....desperate to get out for a run though!

Thanks Pingu. After falling ill SOOOO much last year and with way less volume I am really aware of what you mean. However I am finding this year that by offsetting stress I am able to recover so much better. I did take a rest day entirely during the recovery week. The first FULL rest day in 4 weeks.

I am  now having recovery spins instead of the full rest days. I just recover better with 60min really easy spins while watching IM commentary than just not training.

I do however greatly adjust intensity daily and I pay attention to fatigue indicators as to avoid illness like you point out.

On the science side of things 30% decrease volume on the last week of the mesocycle is more than the normal recommendation.

Cycling points from Tenerife with a few run points. Mount Teide tomorrow.....went part way yesterday and not convinced I'm going to manage to the top but we will see. Out here with four fit blokes but I'm not the last up the hills but the noisiest with my horror for hills.

Catching up after the 'romantic break' north of the border!
Fair play to my lovely OH - she agreed to 5 mile run before breakfast on Sunday, then a stonking 33 mile bike ride. Monday written off due to horizontal blizzards broken up by occassional heavy rain! Then 3 mile run Tuesday before packed car and home. She was great - I did a 6 point turbo for my sins once unloaded the car.
