1st ride after short Break??(1 post)

1st ride after short Break??Flothru
May 20, 2001 10:23 PM
Hello all, I have finally gotten serious about my training this season I have about 1700 miles in between rollers and Road. I have been training pretty hard every day. No real recovery rides just gut busting rides.

After reading many of the postings on this board about resting heart rates and use of recovery rides, I checked my resting heart rate and it was quite high (57 bpm). So I have taken 3 days off the bike and Heart rate is down to 48 bpm. So I am going to start training again tomorrow. I will now be incorporating recovery rides in my training. My question is should my first ride back be on of Recovery style or high intensity? Any help will be greatly appriciated.
