After a long distance walk, or any form of strenuous exercise for a prolonged period, you may want to just sleep, eat and rest. Yes by all means do all those things and celebrate too, what an achievement! Well done! But you must not fully laze around as the body has been used to continuous exercise, therefore it needs to wind down slowly. Go for a slow walk everyday, stretch the body, do a little yoga, a light jog …anything that keeps the body moving and the blood flowing will really help the recovery process.
Hope this helps!
