On the Road Again
When starting back on your training regimen, do not repeat the mistakes that caused the injury. First and foremost, start back slowly. Don’t give into the temptation to try to make up the time you lost by training more. You will just reinjure yourself. A good rule of thumb is to give your body a few extra days from the time you feel healed before you start back on a training program. Being pain free merely indicates that the injury is below the pain threshold; it doesn’t guarantee that it is fully healed. Taking the extra time allows your body to completely recuperate. If you lose more than a few days from your training program, you may need to start your mini-cycle over or even revert to the mini-cycle before the one that caused the injury.
