What do these mean?
Recovery ride, (fast) tempo ride, and sprinting?

Recovery rides are nice, casual rides (usually) the day after an intense workout. Keeps the blood flowing and muscles working to aid in the recovery of the prior day.

tempo rides mean different things to different people; but typically it is a training interval at ~slightly~ slower than race pace. Used to acclimate the body for a race.

Sprinting? Have a dictionary?

you're more likely to solicity many responses on this board by restricting posts to topics such as 'Dura-Ace vs Record', and 'Just received my wife's death-benefit; which bike to buy?".

Meaningful posts are largely ingored around here. Sad, but true.
