Recovery from group rides...
Something just poped in my mind today during a group ride that I wanted to ask.
Today was a nice 40 mile route, some steady climbing and some nasty head wind, averaged around 22 MPH on the normal stuff, 17 - 18 in the wind going up a hill. I was in zone 2 half of the time, zone 3 for about 40 minutes and some zone 4 and 5a, 154, 163, and 175 ish HR... (LTHR, 175 for me).
I am a little tired now, quite an eyeopener on working on my endurance. Now the question. Is a rocovery spin a good idea tonight after a semi to hard group ride this morning? I took in a recovery drink after the ride and I am going to take a nap right now. Is a nice 30 minute spin tonight a good idea? Also is it going to be a recovery problem to do 30 - 45 minutes of E2 later this evening or is it too much in a day?
BTW the group ride was 2.5 hours of riding, not including my flat tire in the last 5 miles...
Just your average club rider... :)
