‘ I JUST RAN A RACE’

Runner's World (UK) - - Training -

Down­time af­ter a big event is ac­tu­ally a good thing, says War­ren­burg. Hit­ting ‘reg­is­ter’ too soon on a follow-up race, either to cap­i­talise on your gains or to re­deem a bad per­for­mance, de­prives your body and mind of re­cov­ery time. In other words, tak­ing a few short breaks through­out the year can pre­vent longer, un­ex­pected lay­offs due to burnout or in­jury. Li­zotte advises tak­ing as many days off from rac­ing as the num­ber of miles you raced. Then, keep run­ning easy un­til you feel the urge to train se­ri­ously again.
