XCFeedsRecovery Week

FasterSkier FasterSkierAugust 2, 2009

After a quality week of training in Utah, this past week was a recovery week…a chance to get rested and do different activities! Recovery weeks are not always easy for me; I am one who does not like to take a day off. Instead of filling my recovery week with “off days,” I used “active recovery” to fill those days. In other words, I used low impact activities such as biking, swimming and double pole to let my body rest and recover. Every other day I either swam or biked to all my legs to recover from the fatigue I’d been feeling for the past couple weeks. This was a good way to give my legs a break and get them back under my feet.br /br /div style=”text-align: center;”a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_bfd1dFDmRWA/SnZWkwYBGAI/AAAAAAAAAZo/6NWA7b0m_-Y/s1600-h/nic+003.jpg”img style=”margin: 0px auto 10px; display: block; text-align: center; cursor: pointer; width: 240px; height: 320px;” src=”http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_bfd1dFDmRWA/SnZWkwYBGAI/AAAAAAAAAZo/6NWA7b0m_-Y/s320/nic+003.jpg” alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5365571195519440898″ border=”0″ //aspan style=”font-style: italic;”Double pole intervals/spanbr //divbr /In addition to doing new and different activities, recovery weeks are a good chance to get out and explore and travel new areas. This past week I drove through Yellowstone National Park, over Beartooth Pass, and into the Gallatin National Forsest in Montana. The drive was absolutely beautiful and I saw several buffalo, grizzly bears, coyotes, and moose. I went for a run at the Insideout Trailhead and explored the beauty of the Gallatin National Forest.br /br /div style=”text-align: center;”a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_bfd1dFDmRWA/SnZXhXYBTfI/AAAAAAAAAaQ/MbjvPbdKPBE/s1600-h/nic+007.jpg”img style=”margin: 0px auto 10px; display: block; text-align: center; cursor: pointer; width: 320px; height: 240px;” src=”http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_bfd1dFDmRWA/SnZXhXYBTfI/AAAAAAAAAaQ/MbjvPbdKPBE/s320/nic+007.jpg” alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5365572236780588530″ border=”0″ //aspan style=”font-style: italic;”The beautiful scenery in Yellowstone National Parkbr /br //span/divdiv style=”text-align: center;”a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_bfd1dFDmRWA/SnZWlE7rUaI/AAAAAAAAAZw/JRwAQIf-ltg/s1600-h/nic+004.jpg”img style=”margin: 0px auto 10px; display: block; text-align: center; cursor: pointer; width: 320px; height: 240px;” src=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_bfd1dFDmRWA/SnZWlE7rUaI/AAAAAAAAAZw/JRwAQIf-ltg/s320/nic+004.jpg” alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5365571201037717922″ border=”0″ //aspan style=”font-style: italic;”We saw hundreds of buffalobr /br //span/divdiv style=”text-align: center;”a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_bfd1dFDmRWA/SnZXg4rcShI/AAAAAAAAAaI/7hwz-Ni_O8M/s1600-h/nic+006.jpg”img style=”margin: 0px auto 10px; display: block; text-align: center; cursor: pointer; width: 240px; height: 320px;” src=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_bfd1dFDmRWA/SnZXg4rcShI/AAAAAAAAAaI/7hwz-Ni_O8M/s320/nic+006.jpg” alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5365572228540549650″ border=”0″ //aspan style=”font-style: italic;”…and yes, they have the right of waybr /br //span/divMy recovery week also allowed my to spend some time at the YMCA Kids Summer Camp.
