KEEP CLEAR OF OVER-STIMULATING YOUR RESERVES OF MOTIVATION AND DETERMINATION TIP #3

By T.J. Murphy

Tip number 3, a little more on the feet. If you’re visiting Boston and want to take in some of the sights over the weekend, choose fun things to do that don’t have you walking around the city, like, for example, the Freedom Trail. These are great things to do, but save them for Tuesday (assuming you’re optimistic about fantastic rates of muscle recovery).

Rather, consider watching someone else trash their legs, like the Boston Ballet dancers performing in A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Boston Opera House.

A Midsummer Night's Dream at the Boston Opera House--excellent way to forget about the race for a few hours.
