Just started riding daily (road bike) on a local university's outside running track that's paved with asphalt and cordoned off for only cyclists. Typical rides are 10-15 miles per day. However, I noticed that if I ride up to the day before I have an ice hockey game, my legs will "feel like jelly" and a lot of core-strength muscles are somewhat fatigued.
I am trying to keep my riding aerobic, via a steady effort without quick bursts of energy. Ice hockey is totally anaerobic, so I don't know if aerobic conditioning from riding is not helping my performance in an anaerobic sport? Should I not ride two days before participating in another sport, to give my body an appropriate recovery?
Also, based on muscle movement/memory from cycling, is it known that cycling can dampen performance in other sports that employ the same muscles differently?
