Determining your Race Recovery Timea22f2557-316b-43fe-a5ab-abef5aac6bcf

Race time is just one factor to consider when determining recovery time. The time it takes to fully recover from a race depends on many factors, some of which are outlined later in this article.

When I refer to full recovery, I insinuate that you are recovered from the race completely—so that you can do a race-quality training session or another race with no residual fatigue or affects remaining from your last event.

I was groggy and felt like I was watching the world in slow motion. After work I came home, changed into running gear and off I went. I could have hunkered down with a nap instead of running but I knew a run would benefit me more that sacking out for a few hours. Yeah, I get it.
