Speed Up the Recovery Process

How to Speed Up the Recovery Process After a HardRace

There are few things in the running world that let you know you have had a successfully hard day of racing like sore leg muscles.

You put yourself out there, pushed to the limit, and came out the other side with nothing worse than some seriously sore legs. (And you know by now that said soreness has nothing to do with lactic acid, right?)

Of course, now it hurts to go down a flight of stairs, the act of sitting down on the toilet immediately bring tears to your eyes, and you can’t wait until your legs will allow you to walk without a limp again.

What They Don’t Tell You About WDW Marathon Weekend

I can still remember back to 2010, the year I ran my first runDisney race–the full marathon during the WDW Marathon Weekend.

I remember going to the expo, feeling completely lost but eventually finding my way to get my bib and race shirt, before literally reading every word that was written about what to do on the morning of the race.

After running the race, however, I realized there were quite a few things that they didn’t tell me about making the most of out of the WDW Marathon Weekend and some of what they did say was complete BS.

I’m taking this year’s WDW Marathon Weekend off, but having run either the full or the half in each of the past 4 years, I’ve got a pretty good handle on what one needs to do in order to successfully navigate the expo, get to the starting line, finish the race, and enjoy the parks afterward.

If you’re running any of the WDW Marathon Weekend races this year, I hope this helps and that you have a great race.

And if you’re running the full on Sunday, there’s a pretty good chance I’ll be watching outside of the Studios. Look for the beard and make sure to say hi!
