How do you guys get rid of long term fatigue? Do a couple of weeks of Z2 only solve most problems or do you take 1 or 2 weeks off the bike entirely?
I’ve been cycling for a year now and using Trainerroad since January. I have not taken a real break since last October and I’ve been doing 1 or 2 100km+ group rides per week and a lot of volume on the trainer during the lockdown. 2 weeks ago a flat tubular made me crash during a sweeping corner on a descent. I was lucky enough to get up with just road rash and lots of broken lycra.
For the last 2 weeks I’ve been training indoors, but no matter how light I take it my legs feel tired and slightly achy. I’m starting to think that the problem is accumulated fatigue. How do you experienced riders deal with it? Can you get rid of accumulated fatigue without loosing too much of your hard earned fitness?
