I promised to explore how to best train all year round, what the science shows about making this habit stick, how the seasons affects us (because they do) and what we, as smart humans, can do about it all so that we do what we want as opposed to allowing the environment we live in dictate to us how we should behave (which is a little plant-like). As always there are no silly questions here and feel free each time I reply to come back with anything my reply sparked off or if something I said could benefit from additional material to provide clarity. As always, again, I will answer each question in the order it has come in and I will acknowledge it before replying so if it has been acknowledged you should expect a reply within the hour. If I do not acknowledge it, I have not seen it and it will not be replied to (I am far from infallible ) so feel free to give me a nudge if you see your question having been missed. I will try to get to each question within 24 hours (coz, dayjob Grrrrrr). Having covered all the necessary rules feel free to open this up by bringing in your questions, thoughts and general queries on how to make training an all-year round thing (which, basically means a lifetime thing).
