DD has some marathon tournaments comming up. She will be called on to give all she can. What do you do to assist in pre game day and between game recovery to help maximize pitching and prevent injuries? I know what her limits are and I know the coaches will lean on her. Nutrition, hydration, ice, massages? I know we could play as many as 5 or 6 or even 7 games in one day, and every pitcher will have to go to their limits. I want to prepare her and protect her so she can do her best as well as help the other pitchers to carry the load.
I have read a lot about running recover and prep with carb'ing up. But what about between games? If you only have 75 minute or 60 minute breaks, what do you do?
