The transition from summer to winter training is typically pretty unpleasant and often the temptation to sit by the fire can override motivation to train.
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.
We do realise that during winter, we are particularly susceptible to illness and injury, but it’s amazing just how fuelling correctly on and off the bike can help.
Jill Leckey is the Senior Sports Nutritionist for Science in Sport (SiS) and is here to provide some top tips on how to fuel correctly over the cold, dark, winter months.
Jill completed a BSc and MSc in Sports Science at Liverpool John Moores University so certainly knows her fuelling for exercise.
