Today was my first easy run since San Dieguito and it felt good to just take it slow on the trails.
I am not sure how many of you take time to recover after a race (or hard workout) but it is more important than you may think. Taking time to allow our muscles and mind to rest allows us to be ready to push ourselves again. It can help keep injuries away as well as prevent us from burnout.
What recovery means to each of us may be different. For some people it means total and complete rest (Active.Com has an article on the 3 C’s). For others it means days of easy workouts that use different muscle groups (i.e. non pounding for runners). Whatever it may be just do what works for you. Take care of the body that works hard for you!
Do you take time to recover? What does recovery mean to you?
Tonight I will head to yoga to give my body (and mind) the love that it needs.
