I usually have my long outdoor ride (4h+) on Sundays after a Saturday of intervals/strength training. And then followed by a day of complete rest (Mondays). Sometimes though, the weather is horrible on Sunday and this forces me to complete the ride on Saturday. I always doubt whether I can simply switch up the days and do my intervals (supra threshold in this case) and ST the day after my long ride, still keeping Monday as complete rest. Maybe it’s not optimal but it is it really detrimental?
I was just curious to hear what you guys usually do the day after a long ride?
