Disruptions to your training schedule are often inevitable for the average runner be it through work, injury or unforeseen circumstances. Often, its not a matter of will it happen but when will it happen. While there is a wealth of information on different training programmes and how to come back from a break to continue training for a set target date, I've been drawing a blank on information for those who train simply to train.
To give context, I'd been following a training schedule for 14 weeks when work took over and I was unable to train for 4 weeks (schedule linked at bottom of post). Now that I'm looking to get back into it I'm not sure where to start. Does time off set you back in a linear line or a non linear one? Where in programmes, relative to where they stopped, have others in similar situations decided to restart their training?
While I understand there is no exact answer, I guess I'm searching for other peoples experiences to benchmark against. Any help will be much appreciated.
