Week 8 | Marathon Day 54

Rest Sleep & Standing Challenge

Today is where you really get better. It’s hard to slow down in this world, but if you can learn how to do this well even once a week you’ll see the benefits extend way past running. So sorry, tell your friends you have to sleep in, skip that sweat-soaked SoulCycle class, and catch up on a little light reading.

Don’t worry though. We haven’t left you without anything to do. Each week we’ll be talking about a different aspect our favorite recovery-related topic: sleep!

Remember also people. OWN YOUR SH*T! The only effort you should exert today should be on ironing out all those hidden kinks in the body BEFORE they become a major problem.

Mobility is key to consistency, and consistency is key to a successful and fun running lifestyle.

  • Sleeping Habits

    How old’s your mattress? If you’ve uncovered every stone in your sleep habits but are still having a hard time it might be time to check your equipment. In addition to sleeping in a room that’s too warm or that’s too light, a too old/too lumpy mattress can really thwart your recovery and sleep! If your mattress if over 7 or 8 years it’s best time to take a look at a new one or spend at least 1-2 nights per week sleeping on the floor. Crazy we know but it works ????

  • Standing Challenge

    Our final week on this big transition. We first want to draw awareness to just how much time we spend sitting each day. Now we want to do something about it by slowly getting you accustomed to working from that standing position more and more! Think you can continue this new habit on your own going forward?

  • Advanced Run

    Easy 3-5 miles if you feel good and this weeks volume has seemed low to you. But remember, this is your recovery week, so always consider the big picture rather than push through workout by workout!

    Total: 3-5 miles


3+ minutes quad rolling

5+ minutes working on something (because we all need a little work on something extra!)
