Nutrition: Top up after training and you’ll recover faster.
Training depletes your energy reserves and your muscle function. Eating within 20-30 minutes post-session replenishes your system faster.
In this timeframe, your body can uptake the nutrition better and metabolises it most efficiently and effectively for recovery.
A combination of protein and carbs is best like smoothies, shakes, bananas.
TIP: Pack a post-training snack to eat on the way home.
RECOVERY WEEK: What does recovery week look like??
Fewer reps, more rest in between, lower weekly mileage and a shorter faster run on the weekend rather than another long run. Our Overall training plan is periodised with purposeful recovery sessions.
Lock these into your training weeks and make the most of them because the weeks after will be tough again. If you are struggling with your running book in at the intraining clinic for a training program.

Lactic Acid: “OOPS!! I went out too hard”
It’s an easy mistake when you’re excited or lose control at the start of a race.
Recognise this early and you can recover with three strategies:
#1 Drop your pace
#2 Focus on a relaxed form, in particular (leg cadence)
#3 Stay calm and breathe rhythmically
Practice these tips and you’ll get back on track with your run more happily.
