The importance of recovery can not be emphasised enough. In order to improve, you need to stress your body with training and then let it recover as this is when it adapts and gets stronger (known as super-compensation).
We have covered various approaches, the importance of rest and good nutrition in aiding your recovery but sometimes, light training is the answer. Some of your swim, bike & run training sessions should come under the 'active recovery' umbrella. Watch the video as Heather explains what it's all about!
