If you are a normal human then at some point you will probably have to take some time off from training. Whether it is for an injury, vacation, or anything else. And if you have to take time off, then you need to plan your return properly. Depending on how long you have been away you need to gradually increase your training volume and loading. Don’t just jump right back in where you were and expect everything to be the same. Be realistic and don’t get down if your numbers aren’t the same. They will come back quickly if you take the right approach and don’t rush. The last thing you want to do is try to jump right in and be so sore you can’t move for the rest of the week. That will not help you get back to your normal training mode. If you are coming back off a break, please talk to the coaches and scale back during the first week or two so you can get your legs back and keep moving. If you are coming back from an injury this is even more important. Don’t do anything to jeopardize your full recovery. Moving can help, but too much stress on a weak area can just set you back further. Be patient and don’t get upset about it, but do get back to training. Don’t continue to put it off. Get back into your routine as soon as possible and everything will be ok.
