Second Set: Green Means Go!

Earlier this week I discussed my recent results following a period of forced down time. Because I can be a wee bit obsessive about working out, and not the best about recovery, Coach Jim suggested using BioForce HRV. It definitely helps keep me aware of when I need to focus on “working in so I can work out”. If you haven’t seen it, I wrote a blog post about HRV previously which you can check out here. It helps explain how HRV works and how we incorporate it into our training.

I know the recovery aspect of training is not the fun stuff like dripping sweat in a gym, but it is crucial to help keep you healthy and on track to reach your training goals. I have learned this lesson first hand and encourage you to explore methods to make it easier to include into your plan as well.

 

Acupuncture can help with specific musculoskeletal issues, but it is also great for stress reduction and overall wellness.

Massage is a great way to make you take an hour out of your day and focus on yourself.

Many of us enjoy being outdoors. Hiking can be an active recovery day.

Vacation can be the best re-charge!

Vacation! Enough said 🙂
