Daniel Clarke: How to ease back into training after an off-season break

Tips for getting back into training safely and slowly before the new training season begins

In a follow up to last weeks video (taking an off-season break) this week I talk about getting back into training after taking a break.  I find it important to ease back into training, not jumping in head first to big volume, to minimize injury risk.  But I do like including some intensity to start getting the heart rate up and speed going.  Once I’m back to a normal training volume I’ll do a few blocks that are a little different to normal training.  It could be a 5k run speed focus, a 1-minute bike power focus, or big swim volume.  This allows me to work on weaknesses, spice up normal training, and have some fun.
