ON YOUR REST DAYS

Runner's World (UK) - - All-Day Fitness -

On your non-long-run week­end day, you might go for a quick jog, but it’s easy to get your limbs in mo­tion with­out lac­ing up. Lift your kids at the park, gar­den on your hands and knees, or call friends while tidy­ing up the house. A walk on steep and/or un­even ter­rain will en­gage your glutes as well as the sta­bil­is­ing mus­cles in your feet and an­kles that keep you up­right while run­ning. Just be care­ful, es­pe­cially if you have a race com­ing up – seem­ingly low-key ac­tiv­i­ties (such as rak­ing leaves) could leave you sore if the mo­tions are un­fa­mil­iar. Fi­nally, hit the hay early: a solid night of sleep is one time that be­ing seden­tary works in your favour, says Gregg.
