This is the second week of recovery. If you need another week. take it. Recovery time is really a personal thing.
Cross country is over. Now it 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.
