Today I am trying something new. I swam this morning and no running or biking. But I am doing a MVP session of :45 the day after my long run.
This morning my legs were pretty good, but still had some tightness in them. So I wanted to see how recovery would be if I did a :45 session today and see how my legs would be tomorrow morning when, if I have time, I want to do a short bike workout.
I caved and increased my rest period to :30. I am pretty sure that will help the numbness as in times past it has. But increasing the rest period seems to reduce the pumping effect. This is ancedotal and a comment on the feeling on my legs more than anything else.
Post pumping, legs feel much looser than this morning. If I have time, I will pump the day after long runs, or on full recovery days.
