This mistake is huge. We’ve all done it at some point in our lives and it can be described in 4 words – “Pushing through the pain”
Now I’m not talking about the pain of training for so long or hard that your body starts screaming at you, but you must ignore it to get to the finish line. I’m talking about the pain of injury.
Training through pain is the quickest and easiest way to end up spending far more money than you need to, and far more time away from training, and for what? To tick a box that says you completed the session?
Any injury you can think of (except for traumatic ones like falling off your bike or being involved in a car crash) can be traced back to muscle tightness at its root and at different stages of your journey towards injury you’ll get different warning signs.
Pain is a warning sign that there is a problem with your body and generally, the more pain you have, the worse the problem is.
It’s easy to train through a little niggle when it’s not very painful as the endorphins (your body’s natural pain killers) created while you’re training can often disguise it. You may even feel like the pain only goes away when you’re training, but this is the first step towards major injury that can keep you sidelined for months!
