The importance of recovery during winter training

Updated: Jan 7, 2020

Training stresses your body into adaptation, and it's only during periods of rest that your body improves and repairs. That's why as a cycling coach I prescribe a period of reduced training and extra recovery at the end of each training phase, leaving the client stronger for the next block of training. Prolonged stress without time to recover leaves no time for this adaptation to occur. For example, during colder winter months client's susceptibility to upper respiratory tract infections (URTI) is higher, inadequate recovery leads to a suppressed immune system and further elevate that risk of illness.
