I’m not sure I’ll be able to do too much training as I am having some pain in my feet. So I am thinking I may do a slow and easy section hike of the PCT for less intensity and to still adventure. I have been taking a break the past month to try and recover and am not sure how I should plan my training and goals for the season. I’d assume I would be hiking at recovery zone most of the time so would it be okay to increase my time in the recovery zone relative to the recommended zones 1/2 for the transition period? I feel like that wouldn’t be enough to improve my aerobic fitness for the base phase so could I treat this as a long recovery period? With this pain in my feet I may not be able to start a full training cycle soon anyway.
I’m thinking to just introduce recovery and zone 1 sessions to what I can do without pain and let my feet recover and then go from there, either a transition phase and a new cycle or more rest if there’s still pain. I am having problems with bunions and pain in the ball of my feet. This is what the doctor recommended.
I tried to look in the book and for a thread on something like an extended recovery period or injury rehabilitation period but can’t really find anything.
