No training at all today - a day devoted entirely to recovery. Once every ten or eleven days it so happens that my day includes no running, cycling or exercises of any sort.

I try very hard to work recovery into the schedule as I believe, through extensive reading and over 36 years of experience, that recovery is VITAL to all exercise training programmes.

For me, one week in every four has a reduced mileage (same intensity but less quantity) and one day in four has no running at all. Recovery is when the 'adaptations to training' take place. This works for me but everyone has to find their own balance between training and recovery.

Finally in a position to put the planned route on the Run To London page.
