Stops / breaks

  • In the summer, look for a cool spot in the shade.
  • Loosen your shoes and put your feet up.
  • Make the most of your break to eat and drink something (walnuts, chocolate, fruit, energy bars, but in small quantities, enough to replenish your energy.
  • Breaks should not be too long (5 to 10 minutes maximum).
  • If you are cycling, rest off the trail. Breaks should be short and infrequent.
  • If the day’s stage is divided into two parts, take a long break to eat and restore energy.
