I've been trying to get at least an hour every other day on the trainer but this doesn't feel sustainable. Feels like I am not recovered in one day of rest. After a couple times on the trainer legs feel pretty tired and its hard to do intervals because I can't pedal fast enough to get my HR up.
I have been stretching pretty well, I usually do quick stretches (10s) before and immediately after training. and long (30s) stretches couple hours after muscles have cooled off. I also do long stretches on off-days.
I usually drink a recovery drink after training and eat after that.
Am I training too hard (I usually do an hour of "mixed" intervals or 1,5h of just pedaling at a steady pace (~80% of max HR)) or is there some way I could recover faster?
I'd really like to train every other day AT LEAST (so I'd get used to riding often in the summer, riding season is not long enough ), I would have time and willingness to train more often but it's the recovery thats limiting atm.
Actually ordered myself compression tights (Skins travel & recovery), hope those might help me a bit.
