Since I am down today with a little head cold I feel like talking about recovery.

 Post workout nutrition. This video by Spartan sensation Hobie Call does a nice job detailing the importance of post workout refueling

 Also,  since I am ramping up my mileage for the Goofy, half marys, and a 50k trail run I have
begun using compression sleeves on my calves after big run days. This weekend I did  back to back
runs and my calves were burning. Sliding these bad boys on really makes a difference. The soreness is reduced drastically and the tightness in my left achilles is basically nil.

  Remember everyone, rest and recovery is just as important as putting in the work.
