Abstract Resume

Background: Sports practice leads athletes to various musculoskeletal and psychosocial alterations, often unidentifiable. Thus, this study sought to identify the levels of stress and
recovery that affect trail runner athletes in competitive training period.

Methods: Transversal study, the sample consisted of 45 trail runner athletes (34.0 ± 9.2 years) from the city of Uberlândia, Minas Gerais, with 29 men (33.5 ± 8.2 years) and 16 women
(34.9 ± 10.9 years). Stress and recovery processes of athletes were evaluated from the stress and recovery variables contained in the REST-Q Sport questionnaire that present qualitative and
quantitative characteristics.

Results: In the variable Stress, the highest frequency of responses were in the ratings Desirable (46.7%) and Satisfactory (31.1%) in General Stress dimension; Satisfactory (35.6%)
and Desirable (31.1%) in Emotional Stress dimension; Desirable (42.2%) and Satisfactory (35.6%) in Social Stress dimension; Tolerable (33.3%) and Satisfactory, Desirable and Worrying (17.8%) in
Conflicts / Pressure dimension; Satisfactory (31.1%) and Tolerable (28.9%) in Fatigue dimension; Satisfactory (35.6%) and Desirable (33.3%) in Energy Loss dimension; Satisfactory (31.1%) and Critical
(28.9%) in Physical Complaints dimension. In the variable Recovery, all dimensions had higher frequency responses in the Satisfactory rating: 80.0% in Success, 71.1% in Social Recovery, 86.7% in
Physical Recovery, 73.3% in General Wellbeing and 91.1% in Sleep Quality.

Conclusions: In the variable Stress the athletes indicated acceptable levels when confronted with current literature in the dimensions General Stress, Emotional Stress, Social Stress,
Fatigue and Energy Loss, but in Physical Complaints they presented rates that can characterize and supposedly evidence the influence of indirect markers of musculoskeletal alterations having
indicatives of other stressful variables. In the Recovery variable in all dimensions the athletes presented rates of acceptable answers, but adjacent to behaviors that favor a good recovery from the
