Introducing #restdaybrags. Created by my friends Amelia, Jonathan and Caroline to glorify rest, #restdaybrags is making resting great again and encouraging more people to enjoy their rest days and see it as a crucial part of training. I for one have enjoyed following their Instagram and seeing so many people embrace the movement. For my part, it has made me consider even more how to make my rest day brag worthy (room service french fries, anyone??). We interviewed the Rest Day Brags team to learn more about the message and movement (errr… you know what we mean).
Travelling can be just as hard on your body as your training, and for many runners, is part of the journey to the starting line. Whether you are flying short or long distance, or have a long drive planned, prolonged sitting is inevitable and can leave you feeling jetlagged, creaky, rigid, and sluggish. But it doesn’t have to. Use this quick routine to help shake off travel-related body sludge and calm pre-race nerves before you toe the line.
