I have a question related to training. I commute to work 3-4 days a week. The ride is 25 miles one way. The landscape is rolling, but there are a few small (less than a mile) hills. I ride to and from work. It takes me about an hour and a half one way. I've been riding for about a year. I consider myself to be a beginner/intermediate rider.
My question is, could I be overdoing it? I would love to give up driving to work altogether, but I usually ride Mon-Tue, take Wed off, and ride Thurs-Fri. By friday, I'm toast. I know that I should listen to my body and rest when I feel tired, but I'd like to work up to doing this ride 5 days in a row. Does anyone think this can be done? ...or is it too much..
Thanks - Jason
