    I remember one gentleman saying that if the legs dont ache after a hard ride, then you're overtrained. However, I've only been riding 4 times a week since school has started. I have substituted my normal rides for racing roadies on a philadelphia bike-way. Man, what a blast. You guys get so irritated! Thanks

    I actually thought it was the other way around. If your legs DO ache, then you've overused them (though you're doing them good by doing so). ...but if they don't, you can stretch 'em out some more.

    OVERTRAINING IS REAL, BU TUNDER-RECOVERY IS A MORE COMMON PROBLEM EXPERIENCED BY THOSE WHO CONSISTENTLY SPEND TIME IN THE GYM

    Competitive athletes regularly spend anywhere from 3-6 (or more) hours in the gym most days of the week. While the philosophy that nothing replaces hard work is valid, this amount of training for the average Joe may be considered overtraining.

    A related question- I am 69 and a recreational rider (avg 25-35 mile rides @14-14 MPH avg) - I started doing HIT spin classes to build strength- Issue is whenever I do one of these classes- I can't sleep that night. Did one yesterday at noon- last night I was up until 3 am. Got up at 8AM - feel ok but tired. I would have thought working hard would have me sleeping like a baby? How long does adrenaline last in the body?

    Any thoughts?

    You know you've overtrained when you get progressively weaker. If your muscles are pretty much and pain after you ride you overtrained and need to rest a few days.

    best multitasking laptop
    This year, the Dell XPS 13 is also getting a bigger keyboard and touchpad that uses every possible surface on the device. Of course, it is just as strong and durable as ever, without compromising function over form. It's no longer a cheap laptop, but for me the XPS has earned its place as a premium brand. All of this makes the best laptop you can buy - and Dell recently updated the machine with the latest Intel Tiger Lake processor, making it much faster and smarter.
