Vacation and rest periods Tips for optimal recovery


Athletes often ask themselves if it is ok to take time away from training, to eat more than normal or to eat different foods than usual during vacation and rest periods.

When an athlete feels like they are not allowed to enjoy treats, it most often backfires. They may not allow themself enough time to recuperate over their vacation, they may not enjoy their time off due to obsessive thoughts around training or eating, they may miss out on important social events, or they may end up binge eating the foods they have deemed forbidden.

Here are a few guidelines we’ve put together to help athletes enjoy their vacation and rest periods and recover optimally.
