A lot of people recover from marathons by doing light cross training or a reverse taper (take your training plan from taper and work backwards). Me? Because I think this time I may have really injured something, I’m recovering a bit differently.* I’m doing one week of absolutely no fitness activity, coupled with eating lots of crappy-but-oh-so-good food and yummy adult beverages. So far so good.
*Note: this recovery method hasn’t been scientifically tested, so try it at your own risk.
Stay tuned for some exciting (for me anyway) news after my
eat/drink fest recovery!
