Re­duce in­jury risk

Speed work stresses mus­cles, es­pe­cially your calves. The ex­tra sup­port given by com­pres­sion gear (calf sleeves or tights) will help re­duce the risk of in­jury.

Stay fresh

Work­ing on build­ing your speed too soon af­ter en­durance train­ing is also a recipe for in­jury. So make sure you’re fresh for this ses­sion and get plenty of rest be­fore and af­ter.

Re­build with pro­tein

Mak­ing mus­cu­lar adap­ta­tions re­quires pro­tein, so have a good whey/soy pro­tein re­cov­ery sup­ple­ment ready for when you fin­ish the ses­sion. (Also check out the recipes on p99.)
