Default Volume question

I have been cycling for the last 2-3 months and I think I have noticed some signs of overtraining/under recovery. Is there a way of working out a program to avoid overtraining by using periodisation?

Cycling as in 600mg or....

Deloading every 6ish weeks should get around it either way.

I should have mentioned that I was thinking more along the lines of volume/intensity for a beginner/intermediate cyclist.

Got back into cycling at the start of the year.
Week 1 - 150 miles / 10 hours
Week 2 - 132 / 8.5
Week 3 - 69 / 5 *2 day virus*
Week 4 - 151 / 9
Week 5 - 168 / 10.5
Week 6 - 106 / 7
Week 7 - 60 / 4 *cold*
Week 8 - 100 / 7 *race week*
Week 9 - 105 / 6
Week 10 - 175 / 11
This week so far - 60 / 4

Looking back it seems obvious I have been doing too much even though I have done a lot at lower intensities, particularly in the last month or so.

I am trying to work out what would be a good amount to start with and build from there. I am lucky in that I have bundles of free time (I'm a student) so at the moment I could easily manage 10 hours a week and as from next month double that BUT I know Lyle has spoken about novice's training like pros and screwing up.

Would it be best to do something like 8, 9, 10, 5, 9, 10, 11, 6, 10, 11, 12, 7 in terms of hours per week with the majority at low intensity and tempo/threshold sessions thrown in as well?

Well look at what you were doing before you got sick

Then don't do that

Clearly. Is there a best way of guessing where to start? The majority is all-day pace.

You got a cold, but did you have any other signs or overreaching or overtraining? Sometimes we just get sick. Did you have persistent soreness, poor mood, etc, etc?
