All or Nothing

By Kathleen Leninger, DPT 

I am amazing at high-level training and at being a couch potato, but I basically fail at everything in between. At the height of my running career I had 2 training cycles that consisted of 6 days of activity, 3 brick workouts (triathlon training), and 2 strength days, and I didn’t miss one day.  I swam in hotel pools and woke up at the crack of dawn on vacation, doing everything possible to get the workouts in. My training plan was my bible. My current training plan looks way different. I am training to run lower miles 3 days a week with 2 days of easy core. I have only hit that once in the last 4 weeks! Perhaps it’s my all or nothing personality, but I’m struggling to stay on track. I don’t think I’m alone here.

As runners are always looking to work harder (read: get faster) and avoid injury, research continues to expand. When considering how to improve performance, training sessions are almost always the first thought. HRV came into play once we started considering how well athletes were recovering after their workouts.
