In this episode, Ed sits down with Tammi and Ant to talk about the difference between taking a complete rest day vs an ‘active’ rest day. In this round table discussion, we discuss why ‘rest’ is an important part of the training process; the importance of balancing stress and coping mechanisms; why we sometimes feel worse after a full rest day and how to use this to your advantage; the importance of looking at life and not just training when it comes to rest days; what an active recovery day might look like; and our closing thoughts on what is a very individualised topic.
In this episode, Ed references a podcast episode with Elena Hobson regarding “The different types of stress and what to do about it”. Make sure you listen to episode 41 if you haven’t already!
