I hope everyone began their recovery last night, as soon as Wednesday practice is over, the recovery phase begins.  Ice baths, draining your legs, stretching, eating whole healthy foods, super-hydrating; all of that stuff helps your body grow back stronger from the hard training that broke it down.

Distance training is a delicate cycle of stress and rest.  You stressed your body really hard from Monday to Wednesday.  Now is the time to rest and recuperate.  The end of the week is when you really get faster, so make sure to work as hard at recovery as you do at intervals and long runs!
