This article was directed at Training athletes. From the standpoint of recuperation, putting the nix on the hike is a very sensible statement. From the perspective of training the non-athlete, the hike may be all they need that day.

In the paragraph titled "Other Activity" you state that "’s easy sometimes for your clients to let “real life” get in the way of their recovery." Ideally a human that recently underwent a testing bout of training would take the necessary steps to recover, gaining the most that they possibly could in physical performance from the enhancement of their various energy, nervous, and muscular systems. Consider this; most clients are not professional athletes; they are probably training with you so they can complete an afternoon hike with their family(the hike is what they are training for). Just something you may want to consider in your next article.
