Yeah, looks like a few weeks will shave some numbers off lifts if my own recent experience is anything to go by, but I don't think it'll take long to rectify that.

Maybe months for actual significant strength loss is about right...

Speaking from personal experience:
I am an overy forty trainee who recently who just took two months off and just got back to training two weeks ago- I noticed about a 25 to 30% decrease in raw strength and a marked decrease in endurance. My post work out aches and pains seem to be lasting longer. I am sure (hope)that this will all get back to " normal" after a few weeks of regular training.
