We asked elite triathlete Lucy Charles for her essential cycling training tips. In this one she focusses on how to relax after cycling to ensure the best recovery for your body.

– Begin your recovery straight after your ride is finished
– Stretch out your leg and back muscles
– Consume protein within the 30-minute ‘Magic Window’ post-ride
– If you have a bike computer, spend time analysing the data to see where gains could be made, and build any learnings into your next session

Check back every day for more videos from Lucy to improve your swimming, running, cycling and mental approach to sport and fitness.
