Cycling, Legarreta signed up for a weight loss competition at work—and came in second place. In the past, he’d tried a number of different diets. “I tried to go from zero to keto in a week. Every time I tried something, it didn’t work out,” he says. This time, I began taking a more active role in taking care of myself.
I was speaking to [former pro] Greg Henderson about it, he was saying in the last few days of the Tour de France his max heart rate would be 15 beats less than it was at the start. Because he was just that fatigued. Obviously in the Tour de France, you cant take a rest, but amateurs can.
When you’re fitter, you just train more intensely on training days. There’s a ceiling to how much you can put yourself through, and my advice has always been to overload more on your training days but stick with those two rest days. Rowe is adamant that recovery days shouldn’t be tainted.
If you’re going out, and feeling sluggish, and you can’t complete the session you want to complete, that’s an obvious sign. Listen to your body, the sensations and how you feel. I’d say anybody riding their bike six or seven times a week is probably riding too much. The other one is heart rate. You get used to the way your heart rate picks up. If you’re struggling to get your heart rate to go up as normal, that’s a sure sign that you’re fatigued and due a rest day.
