Recovery Workout

Hola! As I may or may not have mentioned yesterday(I’m too lazy to check) today was supposed to be a rest day. It’s been a really long time since I had a FULL rest day, and apparently today wasn’t the day for it.

I woke up pretty early and really wanted to go out to the track for sprints. When I got there, although my mind wanted to do them, my body did NOT. So I did a nice, light recovery workout. I know pushing my body when it just isn’t having it will only end in injury.

Recovery Workout

-3 x 100 yd. Strides( Strides are not a sprint, more than a jog)

I also did some karaoke on each side, high knees, butt kickers, high knee jumps and back peddling.

It was a nice way to stretch out my muscles, get my heart rate going a little bit, but also not do anything too strenuous.

I try to listen to my body when it tells me to do or not do something. If you get your mind and body in sync, you’ll be golden.

What was your workout today? Was today a rest day for you?


  1. Good job listening to your body. So important! Today I did an easy run b/c I am having some problems with my extreme upper ham/lower glute area. Hope you’re having a great weekend!

    Oh man, what didn’t I do yesterday? Bike, run, lift you name it!

    I do need a rest day soon!

    Did my first half marathon yesterday!!!!!!! :> Good job on listening to your body. I did the same thing during my run…when I needed to take a little walk break I did. I didn’t get my time goal, but I’m also not injured so that’s cool.

  5. I had WAY too many “rest days” which were actually just vacation days and being sick – eek!

    I was back to it today for a 4-mile walk during lunch, and am planning to do some ST tonight!
