Blood donation strategy.
I have a Tough Mudder coming up on the 20th, so I'm postponing donation until afterwards. However, they are asking if I'm willing to do a double red again (big need for A+ around here). It definitely takes me 2-3 weeks to recover from these. I can usually bounce back from a whole donation in 48 hours.
I want to help out and put the donation over performance. Plan is to train hard between now and the 20th. Do double red that following Monday and rest/recovery for the week...maybe WOD on Saturday which would give solid 4-5 days rest. Think that is risking a big setback in progress? Currently recovering from being out over a month with vertigo from labarythitis. Just don't want to regress.
