The Recovery Conundrum

Morning Post-Race Recovery Workout
1500 meters straight and slow

6 minutes

10 minutes

Random Comments: This is day three of our post-race recovery week and I already feel like I've gained five pounds. Apparently this morning's six minute aqua jog and ten minute jacuzzi didn't burn enough calories to negate the entire pizza and the half container of faux ice cream that I devoured last night as I lay lifeless on the couch. It's a catch 22 this recovery week malarkey. It's supposed to make you feel all good and relaxed when what it really does is make you want to go out and get your exercise on. Harumph. Oh look, it's almost dinner time.
