Yesterday I went for a nice 45 min recovery ride outside, and I did not take my Wahoo with me. The purpose was to do a true recovery ride: do what feels easy on the legs, enjoy the scenery… reconnect with the feeling of riding free and allow my mind to wander.
I found this to be helpful physically and mentally. No worries about speed, watts, distance. No miles to be logged on Strava either. I liked it so much that I am doing that from now on on my recovery rides.
I thought I would share in case you feel like trying it as well.
