Sure why not? Although if you've never done it you should start with 2 miles or less.

if you're having a day off the bike, have a real day off.

Clean your bike, get a massage, eat lots, go to bed early.

jogging ain't for bike racers.....unless you're Jonno Hall or similar freak of nature.

If in fact you really want to recover, and if in fact you really do stress yourself when cycling, then don't run of rest days. If you're just a w*nker, then do what ever you want.

Why not go for an easy run. A liile cross training never hurt I'm sure. Go for a swim too. After a while a triathlon might be something to do for fun.

A monster groundpounding run would, I think defeat the pupose of a recovery day.

Great idea!! I mix it up with running one day per week, swimming another, and lifting weights on at least two other days. That makes my rides more focused and keeps my fitness more rounded. You are much less prone to injury with cross training, I think.
