All training programs assume that the athlete is 100% healthy. The reality is that remaining 100% healthy is very uncommon. If you are an athlete and you are 100% healthy, then your goal is to do every component that exists in the training program, as prescribed. If you aren’t 100% healthy or have never been 100% healthy, then the responsibility of an athlete is to use your brain to discern what to do and what not to do, and then to communicate with the coach about possible alternatives. We are not animals that merely respond to our urges. We are human beings, with brains that must be used to critically think about what is best for us and then to communicate with the coach so that they can best guide the athlete toward their goals.
