54 Mile Recovery Ride following 49-mile Recovery Ride following 82 Mile Hard Workout

The day after an amazing 82 mile ride which was after a 35 mile recovery ride which was after an 85 mile ride which followed losing 4 pounds of fat in a week, I did a 49 mile recovery workout, odd as that may seem for recovery.

The next day, I did a 54 mile recovery ride. I was being a good boy, but outrunning a drafting pack of guys 20 years my junior while only at medium aerobic effort left me no option once they waved me off breaking my own wind alongside them. So I sprinted up to 800 watts and dropped them... took ’em minutes to catch up (drafting each other). But I let them pass and dropped back down to low aerobic, sticking to my plan.

So I was a good body running right around 200 watts or a little less for a while until I just started feeling better again whereupon I did some harder efforts, and then had to force myself to slow down. I guess recovery happens 30 miles in for me.

Still, it seems that 10 days of effort dropping 5 pounds of fat rapidly has taken its toll; I could feel it. So I ate an extra 1000 calories and went to bed very early for the benefits that sleep brings. One more hard ride tomorrow after an easy day today, and they I start to taper off for the Feb 17 Camino real double century.
