Multi-day races are becoming more and more popular. Maybe you have your eye on the Squamish 50; a two-day ultramarathon race where you tackle 50 miles of mountain trails on Saturday and follow it up with a 50K on Sunday. Mountain bike stage races are becoming popular; BreckEpic features six days of mountain bike racing in the Rockies where trails frequently top 13,000 ft. Or are you headed to the Ultimate Frisbee National Tournament where you will play a game or two a day for a week? Or if a destination vacation features several days in a row of big efforts and you want to enjoy the final day as much as the first, your recovery strategy between days is the key to success and having fun (aka. less suffering). When you do a long or hard physical effort where you are pushing your limits, your body gives its all.
