Muscle glycogen - train low, race high!
Muscle glycogen depletion in the recruited muscle fibers used during a specific endurance activity is a powerful trigger for endurance adaptations. The latest recommendation on the endurance grape vine relates to muscle glycogen - "Train low and race high!"
This makes a lot of sense to me. Although getting the balance right is critical to avoiding over-training and stalled adaptation.
Happiness is success.
Contentment is wealth.
