Longer than normal aching legs
I recently did a short but hard ride hitting well above my average for power and speed. Although hard, I felt good afterwards. The following day I did a 30 minute high cadence session on the turbo in the inner ring as a recovery. For the last 3 days, my legs have ached like never before with me having to bail during the final phases of a Sufferfest Full Frontal session. I've rollered the top of the thighs afterwards and they do feel a bit easier as a result. I also checked my BP which is bang in the optimal range. Could it be I simply needed to allow longer recovery after a long HI session and to do an easier recovery session the following day?
I ride a bike. Doesn't make me green or a tree hugger. I drive a car too.
