Just got back from a ride and I have a million things to do today (don't we all).

Often times when I finish a ride I shower, get dressed, then I'm off doing my million other things. Then a couple hours later I crash (just completely run out of energy). This is because I overlook the recovery part of my workout. I often don't eat enough after a ride to allow my body to recover. Three years into my cycling experience I am finally realizing that I need to slow down and be mindful of the recovery process after my rides.

So this morning I ate right when I got off the trike, I iced my knee, took a rest for a bit, took a shower, got dressed and now I'm off to do a million other things...
