Today, I was sore and sluggish from the massage, which was great btw. I've been dragging the last few days. I looked back at my training from last week and I realized I failed to take a pure recovery day while doing a lot of speed, USRPT type training and weights. I don't agree with Rushall that USRPT can be done every day without fatigue. Not correct. Masters sprinters are just a different category, at least ones my age. And it makes sense that high race pace volume, even at 25 distances, could wear you down.
