The plan is to fan this spark into a flame
Week 4: 1x full day, 4x half day
Week 5: 3x full day, 2x half day

In practice:
Week 4: 3x half day working at home, 2 days off sick
Week 5: 3x half day, 1x full day, 1x day off to look after child

Week 6 will be 2x full day, 2x half day, 1x bank holiday.  That completes my phased return and I will officially work full time from Monday 28th March.  In practice, due to bank holidays and school holidays (leave I would have taken anyway even if fully well) I will be working:

w/b 28/3: 1x bank holiday, 3x half day, 1x full day
w/b 04/4: 3x full day, 2x half day

and we'll review at the end of *that* if I need to use more half days for the next two weeks or if I feel able to actually work full time.  I finally checked my remaining leave and I have enough left to keep up a 4-day week for several months, which definitely takes the pressure off.

Is there no way to have a longer phased return period? I realise you probably get more money this way, but it feels wrong to me that you should have to use holiday for this!

Whatever the pattern it is good to have you back.

I think that if you are of a mathematical bent then it is hard to resist being sucked into the temptation of trying to predict and plan round your recovery progress.

I certainly haven't been able to resist it myself. But I don't know anyone who has had an ordered and predictable recovery.

I have noticed that the safe band between too much and too little exercise has got wider and moved higher so it's not all gloom.
