'Tis the Season that most amatuer athletes call the off season. Fall marathon season is over, the weather for most of the country is getting chilly and daylight hours are shorter. Its a season to rest, to recover, and to plan for next season. It is actually as approporiate time to fior physical rest becasue we all have a lot on our "to do" list as far as cooking for the holidays, buying gifts, visiting family members etc. There simply is not as much time to keep up with enduracne trianing. The truth is that having an off season is a good thing! If it's done correctly it is the perfect recipe for improved lean muscle mass growth and speed gains. Using the NutriBullet is a key component in my off season plan. I make sure to boost up on my nutrient status every day so that when it comes time to build my mileage up again my body will be ready to handle to exercise load and I can start off exactly where i left off....rather than behind the eight ball after too many bob-bons :)

Let me know if you have any questions about how to plan out your nutrional off season plan!

Good luck and happy recovery!

 

Jenn thats great info. Getting nutritions stores topped off during the offseason is so important. I just submitted an article about the importance of nutrition and performance. I hope they use it. Many athletes forget or don't realize that your energy cycles require many nutrient factors and cofactors to make them work optimally. Nutritional stores must be filled because you can't fill them during an event. During that time you are pulling from them and depleting them. Healthy wishes Wally Bishop C.N.C.
