Return to Training
Injury is painful and frustrating. Now that you are feeling recovered you may be keen to return to full training. Be careful though, go too hard, too soon and you may get an unwelcome return of your injury. Or cause a new one.
Start gradually when you return to training, by reducing the volumes and intensities until you are ready to align with the scheduled training.
As an example:
- Week 1, you might be able to do all sessions in Z2, reducing the volume by 60-80%.
- Week 2, start with 60-80% of the prescribed intensities and up the volume to 90-100%.
- After this, you may be ready to go again with 100% as per plan.
This will be in accordance with your enforced sabbatical and type/severity of injury incurred. After you have been cleared by your medical practitioner, please get in touch with our coaching team for more specific advice if needed.
Listen to your body and don't be tempted to push it causing new or aggravating old injuries. Consistency is a key factor to success, better to train within yourself regularly than overdo it and have gaps due to injury.
All the best for your return to training.
