If we’re friends on Insta you may have seen this update from me yesterday:
A real feel of 112*F (with 60% humidity). HOLY COW was I really glad that yesterday was an active recovery day and I didn’t need to hit the pavement to run.
I had a busy afternoon driving around for meetings and then Adam and I went out for a nice little dinner. By the time we got around to the gym it was pretty late and we were just about the only people there!
On active recovery days I like to keep it light so I just did the stationary bike (rolling hills, level 1) and then some stretching.
When I first started working with my new coach I asked if I could do strength training on active recovery days, but she says that it’s best to keep recovery days truly all about recovery. Instead, I’m doing a full body strength day after speedwork. This formula hasn’t been easy (and I’m not even doing hard speedwork right now), but I am interested in seeing how it all works out.
I got all caught up on my NBA free agency news while riding out the hills :). I feel pretty good about the chances of D Wade resigning with the HEAT pretty quickly… and you know I’m excited about Dragić resigning down here!
And because I am obsessed with checking the weather and complaining about how hot it is outside I decided to check more one time (I swear I check the weather on my phone 15 times a day!).
A real feel of 93*F at 10pm!!!! I am SO glad that I didn’t have to go running!
To all of my fellow hot weather runner friends, isn’t this summer way worse than last year? Ugh!
Do you have an active recovery day built into your training schedule? What type of easy workouts do you do?
