Leave me alone. I've only slept 12 hours today. I'm swamped.2. Utilize my finisher's spoils. I mean, who really needs another medal?
3. Read this. Great (and timely) article from iRunFar about respecting recovery. It's written specifically for ultrarunners, but I think most of the lessons apply to recovery from all distances. I've been trying my best to abide by them and respect them in terms of planning for future endeavors.
4. Eat and cook. You have to refuel, right? I made pumpkin ravioli this week. One pumpkin beer and all I can do think Fall thoughts. I'm trying to talk the Jayhawk into making his apple pie (it's killer) and am contemplating a batch of pumpkin chocolate chip cookies this weekend. I love fall. Now if it would only start feeling like it.
5. Plot future running adventures. With the high of Snakebite and the decrease in running, I've had some free time to come up with ideas for the future. Up first is the Chickamauga Marathon in November. I've got a few ideas for winter, I'm just hammering out the details.
What are you favorite recovery activities?
