Use the 10% rule when increasing volume

First, I am very pleased with my own fitness level. I have been away for awhile due to shoveling copious amounts of snow (40 inches fell in a span of 4 days) and I don’t feel sore one bit. A little stiff and fatigued perhaps but not sore. The multisport lifestyle of triathlon training has paid off.

My tip today is a reminder to take it easy as far as increases to your training each week. Use the 10% rule. Keep increases of mileage and time to no more than 10% per week. In addition, add a “recovery week” of low mileage or time every 3rd or 4th week.

This plan will help reduce the risk of injury.

Happy training!
