Tired legs growing full of energy

Yesterday I didn’t feel that my legs lacked energy. Today, however it was like that. In the beginning of the run they felt heavy – but like magic, some time during the run it all disapeared. On the second half of it they felt so full of energy I started to believe I could go straight to a race and just do it!

That’s what I’d like to call recovery run – a fascinating phenomenon.

Before I started reading a lot about running I didn’t know there actually was something like running to recover. And if someone had asked me about it I would have answered of course you can’t do work to gain energy straight away.. Well, know I’m convinced about the opposite – and have been for some time. Else it would never be possible to run 6-7 days a week.. And I know that most elite runners can have up to 3 workouts per day too.. Their bodies would never cope if they didn’t mix tough and easy workouts in a perfect harmony.

In the evening I did a session of Bodyweight 500 workout too. It always boosts my confidence since it’s a tough ass workout and what’s better – it really gets your muscles and veins pumping! 😉
