- Recovery time after epic ride?
I’m just sitting here still feeling slightly spaced out after finishing a non stop West Highland Way epic on Saturday night. Up until then the longest ride I’d done in a day was about 8 hours, so I’m in uncharted territory here. I’ve never really pushed myself that hard for that long either. I’m trying to eat well, sleep etc. and I don’t seem to have any injuries which is a bonus. So how long have others found it takes to get over this sort of thing?
Will gentle exercise help or hinder? Any other tips appreciated.Posted 7 years ago
Gazza – it probably took me about 10 hours from Crianlarich. I had a favourable wind from Tyndrum to Glencoe. Then a head wind the rest of the way. The rain was bad turning to torrential during the day. No idea how well you know the route, the mwis.org.uk forecast is showing some mega strong winds for tomorrow (bordering on the dangerous). If you want any more info on the route drop me a message I’ve done it a few times (as sections, not all in a one-er!).Posted 7 years ago
