Performance Recovery at the Airport

Many runners travel on planes to competitions, training camps, seasonal training destinations or to work with other coaches/athletes. The airport is the EASIEST place to start your recovery on your long travel journey. It doesn’t matter how far you are going, you can make a difference at the airport!

Important points:

1. Always move at the airport! Whether you are doing movement based exercises, general stretching, sport specific mobility, yoga or simply walking around.

2. Have water! You don’t need to eat much at all while traveling. Maintaining your hydration is of utmost importance due to the recycled, stale air on planes. Airplanes love sucking your skin and body dry. Drink H20!
