Dry Out, Recovery


Yesterday, we were in survival mode for the wild weather in the middle of Punkinman Half Ironman bike. Today, we are allowing everything dry out and recover. Many think recovery is just resting like sitting and sleeping. Sleep yes, sitting wrong! It replenishing the body with water and nutrients but most important part is active recovery. Active recovery is just moving which can be a short bike ride to spin legs, yoga or walk.

Recovery is a time to reflect on your training. This morning KT and I had a long phone conversation about our training and what needs to change in our training for next year. Setting training goals for the off-season is a start to making next year better.
