This is the beginning of week 1 of our first recovery week. We do this twice a year. Keep the workouts light, and have some fun, go see a movie, check out the new game updates you missed in early season.
Cross country is over. Now is time to unwind.
The body now needs to recover. So does the mind.
We suggest two weeks of recovery twice a year, after cross country and track season. We are providing two options below: week 1 of total recovery (3 days of activity a week), and week 1 of indoor season for distance runners, which keeps it light, and allows you to get into a few races after your amazing cross country season.
