One of the greatest feelings for a runner it tying up those shoe laces and heading out for a run. Often we don’t realize how great that feeling is, until you are sidelined. An injury that prevents you from running, not only causes pain, but also takes away the social, physical, and mental benefits of your routine. Bottom line, injury prevention, quick rehabilitation, and finding something to substitute the benefits of running are key.
The summer is approaching quickly and that means triathlon season is upon us. If you have ever wanted to try-a-tri now is the time! In our other blog post, I talked briefly about the basics of triathlon and what you need to do to train for one. However, I find that most people are terrified of triathlons due to all the ‘unknowns’ –what do you wear? how do you go from one sport to the next? where do you put your stuff? what is a transition? what do you eat? etc. etc. So many questions, so many unknowns.
