This is day five, week seven of the 2022 RunBlogRun Summer Cross Country Mileage Program. It is a recovery day.
Many times, recovery days are even more important for athletes, as many athletes do not recognize easy days. Your body needs to have easy days to recover from the hard workouts, or your body will not get the benefits of the hard days.
Today’s workout for August 20, 2022, is, warm up, 45-minute easy run, 6 x 150 meters, and cooldown.
