Rest and Recovery


I’d like to report that I got up and went to parkrun this morning as planned.  But I can’t.  I rolled over, pressed snooze and completed my 10 hours sleep. And the excuses?

  • I did do a killer BMF class yesterday where we ran a loop of Hyde Park at pace only stopping every 100 yards or so to bang out 20 press ups or burpees or squats.
  • I did run 6 miles on Thursday.
  • I havent got a race coming up.
  • I am having an easier month in December.
  • I will do a long run tomorrow instead which will be better for maintaining and improving my Half Marathon fitness because I need to work on endurance not pace.
  •  Rest and recovery are very important parts of training
  • My bed was very comfortable and my duvet was very warm
