I am a rower, and while in winter training, I typically row on an indoor rower at least 3 times a week for about an hour, doing some pretty intense intervals. I'm assuming that my caloric goals of 1740-2090 calories per day are based on this level of activity.
I'm currently dealing with a knee injury, and I'm not rowing at least until I see a sports medicine doctor in early January (but will possibly have to stop for longer if I end up in physical therapy).
My question is, should I be adjusting my activity level in the fitness settings, so my calorie range goes down? I'm not sure how to deal with temporary setbacks like this, and whether folks tinker with these settings as their activity levels and needs change.
I'm really bummed out that I can't row at the moment, so I'd really like to be able to stay on track nutritionally during this time!
