So 4571, how was it and what did you learn?
I do a lot of cycling and found an easy week of riding is great recovery. It also depends on what your goals were for the marathon ie: running it as support of some less fit friends or aiming for a pb. Youll feel different the next days depending on how hard you went out.
Drink lots of water and carb up hard so your body is less stressed and wants to keep staying active. Biggest mistake I see as a personal trainer is people not eating drinking/enough AFTER training/races. They get caught up with work/family/tv or whatever and then miss out on the big carb feasts that are so important for recovery.
I ran a marathon on July 4th (gold coast- 3:33:33) and then another on August 1st (brisbane 3:48:44). I only did 28km of running between marathons so the August marathon I just jogged the first half and ran the last half and didnt injury anything!
I learnt in the gold coast marathon that I drank too much water at the start and ran a 1:28 first half and got a real bad stomach cramp and could only jog/walk the next half in 2:06.
Ive ran more this year than ever before and have learnt a stack with each race. Its great. But it would be really depressing if I didnt learn anything and kept making the same mistakes!
