I put in a couple of intense training weeks in an attempt to jumpstart my cycling fitness. Some stacked workouts. Anaerobic threshold intervals and such. Maybe not enough recovery. I was starting to feel fit but I was also feeling tired. Apparently, in your 40’s, you need more recovery time.
So when I got on the bike this morning, this is what my heart rate monitor told me.
Its battery was nearly discharged. And so was mine.
Day after a massage and my legs felt heavy and sluggish. It was already way too hot.
So I took the advice and took it really easy.
