    I am starting my 2nd year of structured training using TFTNA . Last year I enjoyed a focused plan with lots of rest due to being off work due to the coronavirus pandemic. This year round will not be the same. I work as a carpenter in film and TV production , working 9hr shifts with the majority of my time spent working on concrete studio floors. I’m aware this time round I may be gathering fatigue that is not necessarily being translated to fitness. Is there anyway I should be tracking this and taking it into consideration along with my TP fatigue score?
    Also does anyone have any tips on how to minimise leg fatigue?

    Thanks

    You’re not alone – there was a recent related discussion: https://www.uphillathlete.com/forums/topic/am-i-training-at-work/

    From Scott J.:

    If you have any times during the day when you can get off your feet, elevate your legs, even for 10 min at a time this can help a lot. That and more active recovery like foam rolling and stretching. Can you get up extra early and do some training a few days a week before work. It’s easier to work with tired legs than to train after along hard day.
