Worked out hard?

Whenever I have worked out hard I always think, when will I benefit from this workout. Even though their is not an exact time span of when you will feel the benefits. Scientist have discovered certain timings that you can use to your advantage.

Pete Pfitzinger is an exercise physiologist and two-time Olympic marathoner says the process is cumulative. 

For running it is generally;

Training done within the past 5 days; Stress that leads to fatigue

Training done within 5 to eight days ago; Starting to lead to a positive adaption

Training done 8 days to 3 weeks ago; Stress has created a positive adaption.

Training done 3 weeks ago; Training is starting to loose its effect.

Fitness you have have today is a mix of all of these categories.
To exactly pin point a specific workout is hard but generally it takes about 8 to 10 days before you see the benefits.
