Jetstar Elite Swimmer Blog – Part 5

Recovery after a race is just as, if not more important, than the training process involved in getting ready for the race. Just like the Jetstar planes – if they aren’t refuelled after each flight they won’t be able to take off again, the human body is exactly the same. If it isn’t refuelled and maintained correctly after a race then having a great performance the next time you race or train is highly unlikely.

Below are a few recovery techniques that I use to help me get ready for the next race or training block. Remember that everyone is different and should experiment with different techniques during their training phase.
