Marathon training is about more than strategically adding miles and then tapering at the right times. Whether you have a series of marathon finishes under your belt or you're getting started on your first 26.2 miles you should be considering physical therapy in your marathon training preparation.
You trained hard, you ran your best, and you finished the NYC half marathon like a champ!
Now it's time to rest and recover like a champ, too. Most people have a rigid training schedule they adhere to, but not everyone knows they need to pay attention to how they recover just as much as they need to prepare and train for race day. Your recovery plan will set the tone for your next marathon and will help color how you remember this one.
