Recovery Days

"I work hard, and I tend to play hard. I very seldom rest hard..."
- Jacqueline Bisset

TIART theme at Runners' Lounge is Rest and Recover.

"How do you rest and recover from your runs?"

My panacea – Run every other day! I seldom run back to back now.
(I used to in the old days, when runners were not even allowed to stop at red lights. You had to jog in place.)

I intermingle run days with no run days. And on most of my off days - I cross train - gym, power walks, bike. It keeps me fresh.
I actually look forward to my run days!

Try it – you’ll like it.

“Your recovery rate slows down each year past the age of 40.”
