Another recovery week! We'll keep the workouts short again as well as do some testing. It's only been 4 weeks since the last test. Your improvement will most likelky depend on your fitness when you started. If you were coming off a big winter layover your fitness should be improving quite rapidly, otherwise expect to see more gradual gains.
