Surprisingly, the three weeks after your goal race can have a big impact on how you’ll race in the future.

In this episode, we’re going to explore the hows and the whys of recovery after the marathon. 

We’ll go into:

  • I’ll go over some common mistakes that many runners make in the weeks after their race that actually contribute to fitness plateaus.
  • how to properly recover from your race, when to start running again, and
  • how to get to the beginning of your next training block faster and smarter than ever before, all without burnout or injury.

We are right in the thick of marathon racing season so now is the perfect time to start planning this critical transition time.
