Making Up a Missed Week During a Microcycle

Suppose you are in the middle of starting up your 1s week on 5/3/1 but for an unforeseen circumstance you must miss the whole week. How would you handle that situation?

would you go
week 1 5s
week 2 3s
week 3 missed week
week 4 back to 5s or would you try to get the 1s week in?

Just pick up where you left off and complete the 1s week

I would make week 4 a 5’s week, and then go straight to 1’s week the next week. I’ve been in the same situation a few times, and my 1’s weeks have been really strong with this setup.
