Question regarding recovery time -
I have a quite active job that requires alot of up and down stairs time - alot. Also, I work third shift which studies have proven to hinder body recovery time (which I have to agree with from the way I feel). I usually ride four days a week, two of them hard and the other two easy rides with the wife. There are more days than none that inflamation gets the best of me. When I take vacation time from work, of course I feel much better when riding - almost pain free, but then when back to work the pain comes back. In the winter months when I only ride moderately on the trainer I also feel better. To my question, how can I continue to ride hard and be able to recover with such an active job. Opinions and advice?
