New Interval Training and Cool Down

One of the most interesting sections of the New Interval Training website is that discussing Cool Down.

There is a suggestion that cool down should include something called “extensive repetitions”.  An example of this would be 4-6 x 200m at 10k pace with 1′ recovery (I assume this is jog or walk).  This is said to increase the recovery and adaptation for the session the following day.

In orienteering this may be applicable for multi-day events where recovery for the following day is always an issue.
