    Started cycling 2 weeks ago. I'm not overweight (im at my perfect weight), but I haven't done much intensive exercise in the past 2 years.

    Today I did 35 miles. Apart from my legs feeling sore, I feel fine.

    I am a little worried though, it's taken just over an hour for my HR to return to below 100bpm.

    Is this because I am not used to the intensive exercise? Should I do less for the time being? And will it improve over time?

    Why two threads?

    I don't really know tbh. I don't even like driving 35 miles.

    35 miles is a long way in a day if you're not used to that much exercise.... I'd start a bit slower and build up more gradually.

    Will do I enjoyed it, it was tough, but judging by my recovery rate I'm not ready for that much intensive exercise.
