Interventions and Modifications to Train Past an Injury

In the previous edition of this “dealing with injuries/pain” blog series, I discussed some guidelines for when an athlete might be able to train through some sort of injury or pain, vs when a hard stop might be indicated. But, even if an athlete is able to continue working through pain, that doesn’t mean that nothing should be done otherwise in order to try to address it, especially when pain levels fall into that “yellow zone” 3-5/10 range. Plus, even low levels of pain aren’t fun, so even though we might not want to stop training entirely, of course we still want to make it better, and get past any injuries in order to progress in the longer term! When niggles strike and maintaining fitness is important, some considerations can be made in order to decrease provocative stresses on the body, while still working towards goals.

The Pursuit of Passion

2020 was a year many of us looked forward to with eager anticipation. As a self-proclaimed Type A person drawn towards symmetry and balance, 2020 seemed like a magical year. I had family goals, travel goals and race goals. My goal race was Ironman Mont Tremblant 70.3 at the end of June. In addition to being an amazing race venue, the race date allowed me to do the bulk of my training while my daughter was in school, kick off the summer with a 70.3, then shift to shorter distance races while my daughter was home for the summer. It was all a perfectly laid plan that allowed physical challenge as well as balance in my personal life. It will probably come as no surprise that 2020 did not go as planned.

Run-Specific Dynamic Warm-Up Routine

Hello runners! Let’s talk about dynamic warm-up exercises. Before we get into the details, let me ask you - how do you warm-up before a run? Do you walk out the door and start running? Guilty - right? In our crazy lives, we are often time pressed and the warm-up seems like the easy thing to let go. But hopefully, you’ll see that spending the time to do a warm-up is well worth it.
