Our Personal Trainers insist that your recovery method can be the most important part of your running training. The reason for this is because if done correctly, your body will recover twice as fast and will also prevent any muscles from siezing up which will help prevent any injuries.
Our Personal Trainers explain that the best way to start your recovery is by reducing your running pace by 50% intensity - even if this means you are now walking. Continue this pace for around 3-5 minutes. The longer the run, the longer the duration of your recovery pace should be.
Once completed you should begin your stretching. This can be done by sitting down and stretching the main muscle groups. Holding each stretch for 20-40 seconds, whilst taking slow, deep breaths. This helps your body to cool down and also helps your blood pressure and your heart rate to return to their resting rate.
By completing the stretches, this can prevent you from walking like John Wayne the next day!
