1.) Tracking recovery with coloring
The idea is simple: rate how you feel during each run, then assign the run a color.
Yellow: felt strong/awesome
Orange: felt normal/average
Red: bite me!
At the end of the month, if you see mostly orange and yellow, you are probably recovering properly. If you see mostly orange and red, you might want to pay more attention to your recovery. Are you eating and sleeping enough? Do you need to add another rest day?
Even though I’m not sure I learned much about how well I’m recovering, I’ll probably continue to track my runs this way.
Mostly because it’s fun.
2.) Kinetic Revolution
I discovered James Dunne of Kinetic Revolution on Twitter and have been very impressed with the quality of the free videos and tips he posts.
If you’re a runner, you’ll want to check out his videos on You Tube.
3.) Nats Push-ups
It’s that time of year again.
One push-up for every point scored. Double that if the Nats lose.
