Reduce muscles soreness after a race

Training can really take it out of you, it’s tiring and can be painful. For every action there is a reaction and when you train hard your body will respond with soreness and fatigue. Sometimes after a run you may feel great all day, only the next day is your body too sore to think about getting out of bed. This is probably Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS).

Perform Pain Reliever has some helpful tips to reduce DOMS and keep you in your routine.

Planning your racing season

2016 might have been about getting into running or it may have been about hitting a new PB but 2017 is time to take on a race or two and test your skills against other runners. Planning your racing calendar early is important for a number of reasons, not only do races fill up rather quickly nowadays but you also need to make sure you space them reasonably so you don’t take on more than you can handle.

Jason Fitzgerald has put together 5 reminders to help create a well-planned racing calendar and help you achieve your goals.

1. Prioritize

The week after the race

After a big race no one feels like walking let alone training or stretching but something has to be done. The question is what? Mark Eller from Competitor.com has some suggestions for non-running activities that will help get you back up to speed in no time.

“Start Your Recovery ASAP”

The longer and harder you push the sooner you need to start, your recovery should start almost as soon as you cross the finish line. You need to get your energy back and refuel your body as soon as possible.
