It’s much easier to improve if you have structure and goals. But when something goes wrong – injury, sickness, it’s is so important to be flexible and adjust your goals. Flexibility and ability to adapt have really helped me during hard times with injury. I’ve suffered with a lot of lower leg injuries during my career and I got a lot better at adapting my training to work with those injuries rather than sticking to my plan. I would increase swim volume, turbo a lot to not aggravate the injury and I used a cross trainer instead of running. Most of these adaptations meant I was inside a lot so I would make sure I got outside. A trip to the beach or for a short walk really helped keep my sanity!
