Change your routine
Feel free to take a week or two of complete rest, but past that it’s time to get active again, taking into consideration that the focus of this time is still recovery. I find that the best way to recharge is to change up my routine. Use the fall to do something completely different that will still maintain fitness. Mountain biking and trail running are two great alternatives that provide great skills and fitness while taking your mind away from time trials and track workouts. Try cross-country skiing, hockey, yoga, squash—pretty much anything that will get your heart rate up a few times a week that is unrelated to swimming, biking or running.
