Cross Training

Ask the Coach: All or Nothing?

For that past several years, I’ve gone through a training cycle of running and competing rigorously from April through October. Then, I burn out and stop all activity just before the holidays (usually gaining 10 to 20 pounds). I ease back into running again in February and March. What are the health benefits or liabilities for this all-or-nothing approach?
—Jason Johnson, St. Paul, MN
