More recovery …

Another slow, easy, recovery ride this morning with a stop for a few groceries, and a coffee at Tim’s.

Oh how I miss my local coffee roasters.

It was an easy ride, I thought. At no time did I feel I was working hard. I geared down on the climbs, and into the wind. But, my heart rate stats tell a different story. They say it was more like a tempo ride. A faster, harder ride. I think this says I’m not fully recovered from the longer, harder rides two days ago.

Not only that, my RHR this morning was 33 BPM. That usually signals a full recovery, so I’m not sure what any of this means. I’ll monitor this more carefully during this taper week in the hope I find an answer.
