Default advice for returning to training after a vacation

Hey guys,

I recently got back from a week long vacation. I wasn't able to continue lifting during the vacation (though I was able to do some mobility/flexibility work) and during said vacation I spent a lot of time outdoors hiking and fishing for several hours at a time (to the point that my back got really sore!); I was still able to eat pretty well. Anyways, when I left for vacation, my training was going really well, but when I got back, I felt like all my strength had evaporated. Just as an example, a weight I could front squat for three reps no problem I could barely do for a single.

I guess trying to jump right back into the training cycle I was in would be a bad idea. If anyone has any advice about a good and/or systematic way to ease back into training after some extended time off, I would really appreciate it.
