Biking the day after a hard ride
I've been biking for about 6 months, so I'm still working to get my body in shape. I want to bike as much as I can to condition my body faster, but I don't want to push myself beyond what's healthy for me.
2 days ago, I tackled my daily commute, increasing my average speed by 50% (I was late for dinner
), leaving me feeling dead tired yesterday. Despite my aching muscles, I opted for biking again instead of public transportation (After work, something crazy inside me made me want to go 10 miles out of my way to my bike store).
Needless to say, I'm incredibly tired and sore today. I know that the more I bike the stronger I get... but would it have been healthy for me to rest yesterday? Or, is it good to do 2 hard rides in a row?
