I know I know, recovery is an essential part of training in order for our muscles to repair but I’m not talking about consecutive moderate to hard days all the time but simply replacing rest days with 30 minutes of easy spinning of the legs with something like Taku.
I’m on a streak of 25 days and yesterday I had a 180 minute average power PB so for me, I feel like full rest days are not needed. I’ve been riding 5 years and work in an office.
I’m currently on the medium volume plan and replacing all rest days with Taku.
Interested to hear others experiences with relaxing rest with active recovery. For me, at my age (43) and a office based job I find it keeps my fluid and gives me a mental boost too.
