About Recovery

ChuckCashBy Jerry Petermann, 2016

Okay, let’s talk about Recovery….

No, not THAT Recovery….recovery from athletic competition and general strenuous physical exercise.

Ask any competitive runner, “What is the one thing that keeps you from improving your times?” and they will tell you, “Recovery time.”

There you have it; the most common complaint from any athlete on the planet. People who train must have time for their muscles and tendons to mend and their aerobic systems to adapt. Precious time. They often take every form or vitamin and mineral ever devised by humans and yet, it still takes time…no matter what.

Well, maybe.

Here’s a true story about a man named Chuck Cash. He was formerly in the U. S. Army for 20 years, retired and begin working as a successful salesman at age 47. His favorite pastime was competitive running; 5K’s, 10K’s, full marathons and rapidly fading dreams of one day competing in Tri-Athlons and pure fantasies of being a ranked Iron Man.
