Riding after Illness

Did 60 miles today with 3500ft of climbing in 3 hours 45 mins.

I felt like giving up halfway round! Never felt so empty in my life totally knackered! Felt fine for the first 30 or so miles.

Been suffering with a heavy cold that developed into a throat and ear viral infection. First time I've been that ill in years.

Only done around a third of my normal mileage the past 2 weeks and hadn't rode for 4 days before today.

Think I should have eased in with just a short easy run? Worried as I have a 140k sportive in a couple of weeks and want to be back to normal.
