Whether its lack of time, work getting crazy, getting a dog or just getting a little tweaked from a hard session, things creep up and slow down our training. I am a huge proponent of allowing the body to heal itself when these little things pop up. SOMETIMES its best to train through the little aches and pains and sometimes its best to know when you need a real break. This decision is ultimately up to you and your coach.
If something does come up that forces you to miss some training days, my suggestion is to sit down and determine what you missed that was crucial to your program and try to fit that into a modified plan. Here is when a coach comes in handy. Provided you have trust in your coach you should just be able to say,”hey coach, i got sick and missed a couple days, what should i do moving forward?”
Your coach should have something witty and motivating to say to get you back on track.
You must realize that its not the end of the world to miss a couple days and also realize that getting back to training even after 2 days off will not be fun. Once you are back into a routine things should level out and you will be back on track to hit your goals!
