Hey Suzie, Coach is correct, we are all different. I currently run half marathons and farther, twice a week. Those are my long runs. For these runs, I run in neutral shoes with cushioned insoles. The day after a long run, I run a shorter recovery run of about 8 to 9 miles and I wear stability shoes because my feet and legs are fatigued. But this is what works for me. I found that I need two types of shoes to help my running.
Good luck on your training..

Faith (and Love)

Thanks Nancy! I will check out the book and a running log sounds like a good idea!

Hey Susan,

I am reading a really great book on recovery by Sage Rountree titled The Athlete's Guide to Recovery. It a FANTASTIC book about how we all must stop and listen to our bodies especially when it comes to recovery from races and training runs. Because each of us enters our running journey at various fitness levels, age, weight, etc, our recovery times will vary.

That being said a 13 mile run is very taxing on the body. See how you feel today and if you aren't keeping a log, now would be the time to do so. It will become a valuable tool in your running journey.

RUN SPARK STRONG!
Nancy

I am doing a half marathon next month. In my training, I just completed a 13 mile run. It has taken me longer to recover then i thought it would. I ran on Tuesday and it is now Friday and I feel like I might be able to sustain a short run. Was just wondering what others have experienced.
