Bringing a horse back into work after sickness

My boy had the flu last week, and the vet said its ok to start working him again. I know your supposed to slowely build them back up after being sick, but was wondering how slow I should go? I was thinking of starting lunge work today (walk and a bit of trot) next week lunge walk trot canter (short sessions), then start light riding for two weeks (walk trot) before going back to regular work.
Does this sound ok, or should I be doing something different? This is the first time I've dealt with the flu, so would like some opinions.

Your plan sounds good. A little sweating is OK but if he starts to be be breathing heavy I'd call it quits. I'm assuming he had cold like symptoms?
