Improved training techniques and an injury free personal best

Having competed in running races and triathlons in the past, Vicki felt that she could do better and wasn’t fulfilling her potential. One of her main problems was getting injured just as her training volumes increased – the crucial part of any distance event training. With the help of her DDW personal trainer Vicki learned to balance recovery periods with training better, while doing more strength and flexibility work. We emphasised the importance of “step back” weeks and increased the number of full days of recovery. We also encouraged other injury prevention methods, including more consistent use of the dreaded foam roller, regular massage and ice. She subsequently pushed through her personal best without and serious injuries.
