Sean Asks about Cycling Commuting and if it counts in training?

Thanks for all the great podcasting. I’ve got a question about recovery/commuting via bike. I commute via bike about 15 miles a day, 5 days a week, on city roads (so a lot of red lights and stop signs). I enjoy getting to work that way, but its also way more convenient. After a hard weekend of bike racing (CX+MTB), hiking or something else, I usually still ride. Is this hurting my recovery by slowing it down? or has my body accepted this as normal?
Lastly, would you generally count this time+effort in training at all? I’ve done it here and there with a PM, just to get an idea, and get anywhere from 35-50 TSS for the roundtrip. I basically try to keep the effort low whenever possible, but there’s always something that throws that off.
