Hi, I am new to this forum and would like to ask for your help on recovery.
I am a 44 year old female, I train on a regular basis but find if I dont allow my body to recover for at least 4-5 days between workouts I feel tired when I do exercise. I don't take that amount of time to rest normally as I would hardly get chance to do any exercise. I find the further I run or ride the longer it takes for recovery. At the minute I feel like all my runs and rides are under par as my quads ache and have a general feeling of fatigue.
This is my usual weekly workout schedule
Monday - 3 mile run
Tuesday - 30 mile bike ride
Wednesday - REST
Thursday - 4-5 mile run
Friday - REST/ Walk
Saturday - REST
Sunday - 50-80 mile bike ride or 10 mile run
Can you help with tips on recovering quicker, I do get dehydrated quite often
Thanks in advance
