Some people consider half an hour on the turbo or rollers recovery, I always say a rest day is a rest day – for your body and your mind. I’m not an advocate of active recovery. You’re either resting or training. As soon as you start getting your kit on, you’re in bike mode.
As riders get older, they do need a little bit more rest. But it is very individual. You get some 55-year-olds who will happily ride five or six times a week, and you might get a 40-year-old who just feels they need that rest. As a general rule of thumb, the need for rest days does slightly increase as you get older.
And it doesn’t count if you use it to hike up a mountain, swim the channel or pound the streets in search of an entire new wardrobe. Make sure it’s high quality rest, and keep hydrated. Be as conscientious as on training days – tell yourself ‘my purpose is to rest properly’. You can not ride a bike, but go hiking, walking round town or swimming – that’s not rest.
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.
