Hey all! First time poster here. (I am a proud 288lb clyde)
At the risk of sounding stupid...I have a question:
I am averaging around 70 miles a week for the past 5 weeks. I am working toward a 50 mile event ride this weekend. This morning on my ride (around 15 miles) my legs were just dead. It was the worst day I have had on a bike in a while. It kind of scared me. I was not worried about riding 50 miles until today. Am I overtraining? I am taking a couple of days off a week. I am going to try to stretch more, I think and maybe some walking this week. Or do I need to suck it up and work through it? How often do you guys ride? I feel like I want to ride everyday.
btw, thanks for all the motivation you guys have given to me and all the other lurkers out there!
