Recover

Coach and I are trying a new approach with my training. More recovery. The whole idea behind training is to stress the body, let it recover, and it comes back stronger so you can repeat.

I had a solid weekend of training with a great run off the bike yesterday. And today it's feet up and relax. Except the view out my office window isn't quite as great as that from this Adirondack chair. But I'll pretend...

Enjoy your recovery day. Hope there's no snow in your 'view' :-)

My whole training routine revolves around recovery with training sprinkled in...... maybe that's my problem??
Hope it was nice.

My body responds well to recovery. Trouble with me is I usually take it too far. Too much rest, and too much eats!

Great work at Wildflower -- I am always impressed with your speed. I bet it was fantastic racing with your Dad.

YEAH!! Enjoy the recovery and get some extra Zzzz's! :) And oh how jealous I would be if that really was the view from your office. ;)

Gosh, Charisa, I felt stress actually leave my body just looking at that picture. May all recovery days be spent in surroundings like that, even if they're only in our imagination!

So do you enjoy the rest day or do you feel antsy? Or are the rest days few and far between enough that you look forward to them because of the strong training you're doing?

I know how important rest/recovery time is (my coach has drilled it into me), but sometimes it makes me antsy to not work out that day...

Here's to recovery and discovering some new places with that kind of view. Lovely.
