I have a little routine that works well for me - I like to more or less run my taper in reverse:<br><br>
Sunday: race day<br>
Monday: rest day<br>
Tuesday: walk for 30 minutes<br>
Wednesday: "jog" for 30 minutes (the only time I don't mind using the "j" word - it hurts every step of the way, but you feel 10X better once you're done)<br>
Thursday & Friday: 4 or 5 EASY miles<br>
Saturday: x-training<br>
Sunday: 7 - 10 easy miles (legs should be feeling almost normal by now)<br><br>
and you?

This is what I did/am doing, not too exciting-much more conservative than my taper. I have no soreness at all, but I don't think my energy is really back yet...<br><br>
Sunday: Race<br>
Monday: Off<br>
Tuesday: Off<br>
Wednesday: EZ 5<br>
Thurs: Off<br>
Friday: EZ 5<br>
Saturday: EZ 5<br>
Sunday: EZ 8<br><br>
So far this week--M: 5, T: 7....I'm just running unstructured slowing building back up until I start training for Boston in a couple of weeks.

I want your recovery weeks! My soreness is gone and I'm already missing running.<br><br>
Mine:<br><br>
Monday: walk 30 min for recovery<br>
Tues-Saturday: rest or 30-40 minutes cross-training <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad"><br>
Sunday: easy 3<br><br>
Something tells me I will not be following that this week.

Right now, I'm kind of doing recovery by feel for this one. My marathon (Charlotte) was just this past weekend.<br><br>
But generally, I'm thinking walking/cross-training and MAYBE a little short, light running by end of week.<br><br>
Next week, I will resume spinning, add in some swimming, but still keeping the runs light, probably none longer than 5-6 miles.<br><br>
After Christmas, I'll do a "ramp-up" week prior to starting "official" spring marathon training the following week.

sounds like everyone is having a nice recovery - it's alway interesting to see what other people do<br><br>
