    I have just returned to the bike after a 2 week layoff following a NASTY chest cold (ya know, hacking up LOTS of green stuff)...during this time, I also lost 2Kgs... Today I watched my heart rate jump and dive as I rode an easy 1 1/2 hrs. I couldnt believe how quickly I lost all my fitness! My legs felt NOTHING, but my lungs felt like they had a full workout.

    Question: How long does recovery take from this kind of thing?

    Thank goodness it is the off-season...

    e :confused:

    It could potentially take 1-2 days for every day that you were out of commision. Even when I took a one week transition during the summer, it took about the same amount of time to get things back to somewhat normal. The old saying - "use it or lose it" is the rule...
