>Running 101>Recovery after Race?
You'll ruin your knees!
""...the truth that someday, you will go for your last run. But not today—today you got to run." - Matt Crownover (after Western States)
I've got a fever...
On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will wish that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.
Not only should you not stop running after a race, but you should actually run the day after, and then take a day off. The post-race-day-super-easy run helps loosen you up and hastens recovery.
I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
