If it was me, I would continue on with the plan but have the strength training on its own timeline. Were you able to do lower body strength training at all or was it just the upper body strength training that you had to stop?
I am currently following a 34 week annual training plan focused on mountaineering and ski-mountaineering. Due to a shoulder injury, I have not been able to do any strength training however the injury hasn’t prevented me from running/aerobic training.
My shoulder is now at a point where I can start strength training again and I am now into the seventh week of the transition period having completed all the aerobic, but none of the strength components.
Having cranked out a few push ups, I have lost quite a bit of upper body strength and shoulder mobility over the past two months.
My question is, should I continue on into the base period complete, pursue the strength and aerobic components on different timelines or just bight the bullet and re-start the ATP at the beginning of the (potentially shortened) transition period?
