Congratulations! You’ve completed your marathon…. all that training, the sacrifices you’ve made along the way, and now it’s over. It can be quite common to experience post-marathon blues, and wonder what you’re going to do with all that spare time now!
In general, people exercise to make some part of their body function better. However, without effective use of recovery periods (see 4 Recovery Periods Your Probably Ignoring!) you’ll most likely waste most of your hard work! With this in mind here are 7 simple recovery strategies everyone needs to be doing. Give them a try.
Like me, if you train hard from week to week and month to month on a specific training programme you’d like and expect to see regular physiological improvements and adaptations. I can say I do, but how many people are actually treading water, or in some cases going backwards, from week to week and month to month, or even year to year?
