How to maintain a healthy weight in the off-season

Taking time off to recover, see friends and make the most of Sunday lie-ins is just as important as training. However, less activity means it's easy to gain weight but there's no need to panic. 

Putting on a few pounds during the off-season isn't going to have a lasting effect and some say that athletes that hold their race weight all year long are actually more prone to illness and injury. A low weight means that their immune systems are under pressure and they don’t have enough reserves to replenish energy or rebuild their body.
