I would really appreciate some feedback on the a ride I am recoverying from.
On 06 Feb I did a 155km, 7 hour Mountain Bike ride which was pretty flat and had a head wind for most of the ride. Although I was shattered, I did not hit the wall. I had the next day off, the following day ( 08 Feb )I went for a short recovery ride - my legs felt really flat, I had hoped to do a hard hill ride the next day (09 Feb) but my legs were still flat. Yesterday I got a hard hill ride in but my legs were not firing and did a 95km road ride today and again my legs felt really flat. 7 hours is the longest I have riden for but have done up to 180km on the road bike in the past. Based on the info given I am hoping someone can tell me how long should I allow my body to recover and is it still trying to recover?
