Training Topics

Overtraining: Getting the most out of your training is a fine line between training enough and resting enough. Overtraining occurs when athletes try too hard to improve performance and train beyond the body's ability to recover. Here’s a look at overtraining and some suggestions to help avoid it.

Breathing: Most runners and walkers take notice of how their body is moving during a workout but very few keep that same attention to their breath. How you breathe during exercise can make a big impact on how you feel. Take a moment to refine your breathing technique and you may notice a big difference in your workout.
