However, ¬†winter training is fundamental preparation for the season ahead and therefore it’s essential to get it right. You never know, you may actually find some smug enjoyment from being out in the wilderness, while most are tucked up inside.

Jill completed a BSc and MSc in Sports Science at Liverpool John Moores University so certainly knows her fuelling for exercise.
