ok, first off, let me run down who I am and what not.
I'm a father, a husband, a sailor, a liberal conservative, a lover of music, a lover of the outdoors, and an artist of words. I'm in good shape physically, maybe like 5 or 10 lbs to lose, but still I'm in good shape. 3 weeks ago I started riding my bike to work due to various motivating forces, and I love it.
I drive in with the bike in the bed of the El Camino on Monday morning and drive back on Friday afternoon when I get out of work. All the time inbetween, I ride to and from work. The shortest route I take is a hilly and challenging (at least for me) 9.4 miles. The longest route I take, now that I have my new city tires and wheels, is about 16.7 miles ( I have yet to take it, but I'm starting out this Monday!!!).
I know what it is to push myself and not hurt myself. I started using Endurox (from GNC) as my recovery drink, in tandem with my Megamen powder vitamins.
I want to ask, am I overtraining? Am I pushing myself too hard? And is my choice of recovery drink a good one?
