I sustained a knee injury following a triathlon in 2019 and it’s been a long, tough journey to get to a point I have been cleared to get back onto the bike and do any moderate level of exercise. Over the last 2 years of inactivity I’ve gained a lot of weight and lost a lot of fitness. I managed to finish the '21 ToS (reduced load, obv) to prove to myself I could do it and, after a week off, I’m now trying to make a decision on a plan to get myself back in shape and stay motivated. Not easy when I can see how much my performance has fallen off over the enforced break…
I do need to run (and swim, when the pools reopen) but am very limited in distance as my knee doesn’t appreciate too much load at the moment. Weight loss is the focus really so I was wondering whether anyone had any views on which plans might be the best option. I will more than likely go bespoke eventually but am holding back to see if my knee behaves itself and the pools will reopen any time soon.
