Practice Log

Recovery is essential to improvement

I've always said "the key to fast running is a slow jog". Active recovery incorporates managed movement to enhance and accelerate recovery. Train 21 day cycles with one day off (except for MS).

Keep accurate records

Proper training is scientific and data driven. It's okay that you estimate and improve as you grow in the program.

Reflect and Respond

Look over your data, reflect on the week, and communicate with your coaches. Performance is a symptom of your training.
