Any pro athlete or coach would tell you the same: recovery days are a VERY important part of training. And if you studied sport’s physiology a bit, you know it from actual facts and serious studies.
Muscles, tendons and ligaments. They all deserve a break. Gotta spoil them too. Some TLC, please! A massage? Why not!
So today, I’m enjoying my recovery day. Simple pleasures. Lots of eating and drinking involved. Probably not what you think…
On the menu:
– H2O, Perrier and herbal tea.
– Fruits: banana, kiwi, raspberry, blueberry, apple, mango, orange, you name it!
– Vegetables : lots of that green stuff.
– Lean meat or fish
-12 grain bread
Key words : refuelling with healthy food. Doesn’t have to be fancy, just has to be simple, made from scratch.
And, between you and me, a must for the soul, coffee and dark chocolate!
While I’m at it, a DVD in the mid-afternoon…with a black dog, sleeping on your lap…
Perfect time out!
