Recovering Mind & Body
My body is drained from all the running of the past weeks (accumulated fatigues from my marathon training). Since body is one moving piece, the physical stress takes a toll on my mental state as well. I feel lethargic just walking around.
Now is time for me to recover. Time to getting myself ready & recharged. And the most recommended method is sleep. Yes, good & plenty. But for me that is a work in progress – getting sound & restful sleeps has been challenging for me.
With my running volume reduced, I am going to devote more time on my mental energy and focus. You probably guessed it: I will practice more yoga and meditation. Because in a week I will be driving up to Erie, PA.
So I have one week to get my mental state (and body) ready.
Besides sleep, what practice do you use to get yourself ready?
