This video focuses on the all important "recovery window" post run, workout or race. There are more tips below on things to help make your rest week a success!
EASY TRAIN TO PROPER REST...
Reduce volume by 20-50% depending on how fatigued you are, how big of a build the last set was for you etc… if you’re not sure, take MORE rest than you think. Often if we're questioning it, it's because we need it.
Try to get more sleep. Go to bed 1/2hr earlier every night this week. Leave your phones out of the bedroom.
Make more time to stretch, foam roll and rehab exercises/mobility focus. **it’s a new time for us and we need to be even more responsible with our recovery as we don’t have the same access to practicioners. This isn't just for rest week - this is for every week!
I encourage you all to be cautious of that fine line where you think the extra hours this week will pay off and really hope you’ll all back off enough and take good care so you can stay strong and enjoy the remainder of the clinic.
CROSS-TRAIN and give your running body a break. (this doesn’t mean jack up the cross training hours though. It’s variety)
