You don't actually believe these do you? Mine routinely tells me I need most of the next day to recover from any length of ride.

Is OA going to produce some guidelines for rebooting along the lines of the AIS Framework released with the PM's statement on Friday?

My watch once told me that I needed to rest for 28 hours after jogging 800 meters on a road to the start. That was at the Oceania Middle in New Zeeland, but even so a bit on the high side...
I didn´t really consider obeying but since we were then traveling to Auckland for the WMOC I still didn´t run until two days later (while actually starting the race I was warming up for).

We've already distributed something to state associations, beyond that all we can really do is wait to see what various state governments do (which is likely to vary from state to state).

And no, I don't believe the recovery times either, but if they're doing something unusual I'm guessing it's for a reason.

The only unusual thing my watch recovery times could do would be to appear sensible.

@bubo, as setter for that race I hope at the end of the day you didn't wish you had followed your watch's advice instead
