Healthy Runner Podcast

Oct 15, 2020

Did you just finish a marathon or half marathon?  Are you wondering what to do after your race to speed up recovery? 

In this episode we are covering marathon and half marathon recovery tips!

I answer common questions like:

Can I run the day after a half marathon?

How long should you rest after a marathon?

When to start running after a marathon?

These post-race recovery tips will be covered in 3 distinct phases:

  1. Immediately after your race
  2. Day of your race
  3. Days following your race

Following these tips will ensure you bounce back quicker with less soreness and get back to doing what you love again...running!
