Rest and Recover…

A lot of us just raced the full or half marathon, and now its time to take a well needed rest.   But resting doesn’t mean doing nothing.  In fact, unless you have an injury, active recovery is better than passive recovery.   (Active recovery = super easy exercise i.e. 60 – 70% of your max heart rate, light cross training, etc…)    Also, a good rule of thumb is to take 1 recovery day for every 2 km of racing.   For half marathoners, that means a good 10 days of easy exercise, for marathoners its more like 3 weeks.

Try Yoga…

Want to try something different?   Shakti Yoga has a promo for East Nasty runners this week.   $5 drop-in classes (normally $18) through Sunday 5/8. Use code EASTNASTY as promo code when purchasing a drop in class. Lauren Farina and Kelly Carter, the owners of the studio, run with us and want to share. www.shaktiyoganashville.com
