Ready to push hard again?
Recovery. How long after a hard ride does it take for your quads to be “ready” to push hard again? Being 43 I don’t recover as fast as I used to. Century ride on Saturday, extremely laid back, short rides with the family Sunday and Monday. Today did a relatively hilly 31 mile ride and my quads were trash on the hills still but decent on flats even with the feeling of riding on a flat even though I had 120psi. Any secrets to recover faster? I have a protein shake within a half hour of hard rides, sis gels during the ride, immediate stretching when done, well hydrated, etc….
