      Relaxation training

      One option is to have an ‘active rest’ by trying a different activity to running such as cycling or a team sport. Other options include having a sports massage, so that the tight stiff muscles, particularly in the legs are completely relaxed and regenerated ready for the next session. Water training is an ideal way of relaxing the muscles without any weight bearing taking place on them. The runner can use normal aerobic training methods in the water using a wet vest (buoyancy aid), or simply go through a swimming routine to help recovery and retain aerobic fitness.
