Exactly. I actually did a couple of 25 ish mile recovery rides the two days following & didn't feel bad at all. Just goes to show that at least for me, I am able to do things like the Davis Double (200 miles in a single day) provided I eat and drink. I think a lot of other riders here could do the same, but it does required quite a bit of planning if it's self supported. Heck now I'm even kicking myself for skipping stops on the supported rides I did in the before COVID times with the hindsight of "Yeah I felt pretty crappy the day after." when I didn't need to.
