In brief: Depends
Degrees of recovery will vary with the virus causing the cold, your age and immune status, the amount of energy you are expending in work and play activities.
Ebv and CMV can both produce prolonged fatigue, among others.

In brief: Deconditioning
Even the common cold can induce a state of deconditioning, the consequence of bed rest.
Returning to a healthy lifestyle is a gradual process reached by increasing your activity level including exercise, proper nutrition and rest.
