Question from Karey LynnAny suggestions on how long to rest before resuming training after a sprint distance race (my race was on Saturday)? I only had 6 weeks to prepare for this tri, so I pushed myself pretty hard while I was training. After my first figure competition, my trainer had me take a week off just to rest and recoup, but don't know if that's needed here.
Answer from Mat SteinmetzD3 Multisport CoachThere is no set rule on how long to recover after a race because everyone is different and will be dependent on a number of factors. “When is your next race and was this the last race of the season?”If this was your last race of the season or your next race is a long ways away, you can be a little more gradual with working back into training.
