Too late- you should have done it on Saturday.
The milage you are doing means that if you do a 70- it will not bother you.
But- Feeling stiff today- Aching joints- No energy- and feeling hungry? Fuel up and rehydrate today and do a gentle 10 miler. One gear lower than you would normally be in and lower the cadence abit. The legs just have to turn to get some movement back into them and the lungs just need to know they are working.
I can normally manage this for about two miles on the recovery rides and then it goes haywire. A rider comes past me- or I see a rider cresting the next hill and S*d the recovery ride- lets have a bit of fun.
How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
