Back on Track is both a guide for athletes and active people to recovery woven amongst a personal story about recovering from a life changing road bike accident, overcoming serious multiple injuries to race and win again. The book contains advice and motivation to support each stage of the recovery process, highlighting potential issues to plan support for and options to consider. Fiona interviewed a range of experts from medical consultants, physiotherapists and athletes to provide advice from European swim masters record holders, Olympic track runners and World Champion triathletes such as Dave Scott.The final chapter details a progressive rehabilitation in stages using pre-training sessions to bridge the gap between basic mobility goals such as learning to walk again, to ongoing physiotherapy exercises and conditioning back to being functionally strong and physically ready to resume training in triathlon or multi-sport.
