What type of recovery is best(2 posts)

What type of recovery is bestDean
May 8, 2001 9:05 AM
I posted a couple days ago for some advise and was told by a few responders to take some time off. I have been riding 4-6 days a week ranging between 15-25 miles per ride. Is recovery off the bike better or is an easy recovery ride better? I took yesterday completely off but it is beautiful outside today and I really want to ride. Should I stay off the bike for another day, of go out an go really easy?

is best - keep everything ticking over, nice and gentle. Troube is, if you are like me, it doesn't work - you can't help yourself and you start going harder and harder and harder.....

If you have the discipline, ride gentle, if not, don't ride, rest. Or have a nice swim, that's good for you and non-stressfull...
