Day 006 - Shoes off!

Day off        Training via ActiveMail

TAKE TODAY OFF! RECOVERY is the theme of this training program. Recovery means letting your body rest and recuperate between workouts. It is important for two reasons. First, without adequate recovery, runners tend to overtrain, becoming fatigued and increasing the risk of injury. Secondly, muscles actually grow stronger in the period following a workout, not during the workout itself. If you don't give your muscles that post-workout time to build strength, your running won't improve as quickly.
