This is Winter Workout Week Nine, day 3.
Recovery days are key to your development as an athlete.
Coaches need to know how important that a recovery day is as well.
One of the challenges as a coach is to curb the over-enthusiasm of athletes as they train. Many believe that the harder your train the better athlete you become.
The truth is more complicated.
Successful training includes hard days, easy days, moderate days, consistent training, and a consistent plan. Recovery days allow the athlete to give their mortal engines time to use the hard workouts to build fitness.
Your recovery workout today is warm up, 45-50 minutes of running, moderate, with six times 150-meter stride outs, then, a cool-down.
