Marathon Recovery


Jonny Mellor

All plans by this Coach


3 Weeks

Plan Description

Inadequate recovery following the marathon can put you at a greater risk of injury and over training syndrome leaving you feeling flat and tired going into your next block of training.

Having invested so much time and effort into the build up, it’s easy to neglect your post marathon recovery and despite feeling recovered it could take up to 26-days to fully recover.

This does not mean you can’t train in the 26-days following the event; in fact light training can help to speed your recovery and set you up for future challenges down the line.

My 26-day marathon recovery program can help get you back on the road and make the most of the fitness gained in training for the marathon.

Along the way I share useful hints and tips to get the most out of the program and get you back running at your best in know time at all!
