This applies to everyone, across the board, any sport, any training style.
I think a lot of people misunderstand this and revel in the whole endurance athletes are weak and sickly theory. Running a couple of miles is not training for an ultramarathon. I also think people misunderstand Ross who simply countered the doing things at one slow pace all the time method. Perhaps I'm wrong but he advocates periodisation, varied intensities and adequate rest. So many people have decided it has to be all out, all of the time, in effect going to the opposite extreme.

Slightly off topic but I'm interested how you vary things with your rugby girls Shaf.
