    Hi Guys,
    Need some advice. So first some background info on me.
    68yrs old in fairly good shape
    Riding for approx 18 months (runner previous to this)
    So this is my problem:-
    I can't seem to find a balance of training that doesn't leave my legs weary on the next ride.
    I've tried a short 15km rides with steep hills (with a thought to gain power) on a Wednesday followed by a long endurance ride on Sundays (70-100kms)
    I've tried changing that to shorter much less intense rides Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays to see if I can rest the muscles a bit.
    I drink electrolytes etc during the ride and a Recouperation drink straight after the ride. Didn't stretch but massaged but now trying stretching.
    Anybody got any suggestions as to what I may be doing wrong?
