Recovery In Training

When in training, any training, there is usually a target with goal and schedule.

My marathon training this year for example targeted the Wineglass Marathon which took place in Nov. And my training consisted of a 20 week build up in distance and speed.

What often not talked about in training is the recovery piece.

Yes, RECOVERY which is more than just sleep.  In fact, our fitness level improves in large part from recovery.  Otherwise one would just keep running.

Jeff Guadette of Runners Connect explains how the recovery piece works in this article:

How the Workout and Recovery Process Works : Runners Connect.

So sound workout includes recovery.  In fact workout without proper recovery is inefficient and often results in injuries.  Applied correctly, recovery is a key difference in making training more effective and reaching one’s goal quicker.
