Kinetic Sprint Triathlon 2014

    

Race Season

Race season has come upon us quickly. Jogging, cycling, and swimming are all great sports individually and combined in many ways. They are also sports performed in one plane, or direction, which can lead to increased risk of injury or discomfort in the ankles, knees, hips and back. Cross training in multiplanar motions, or many directions, can reduce the risk of pain and discomfort and even injury. Good luck out there this season, have fun and stay balanced.

Five Reasons You Shouldn’t Skip Your Cool-down

 

Take a Small Step Forward Today

I love it when my clients try something new.  When they set a goal and go for it!  Their excitement and enthusiasm is equal to that of a drug.  It makes me want to set a loftier goal and go after it.  Often, like a honeymoon, that enthusiasm wanes.  The long hours of training.  The time and monetary investment.  The early mornings or denied nights out so you can achieve your goal.  They can take their tole.  Its hard to do without or deny pleasures for a goal that seems so far off.  

YOLO

YOLO is an acronym for "You Only Live Once". It was originally coined over 100 years ago but in recent times it has been used by the younger generations as an excuse for stupid and reckless behavior. The Washington Post and The Huffington Post describe it as the "newest acronym you'll love to hate". YOLO is similar to carpe diem or memento mori, it implies that one should enjoy life, even if that entails taking risks.

All in the Hips

 Runners need strong hips to support the movement of their feet, ankles, and knees. Strengthening this joint can cure a host of running injuries.

Why Am I Not Losing Weight With Running?

ARTICLE OF THE WEEK: Why Am I Not Losing Weight With Running? Many people start running to lose weight, and it makes sense - running burns a lot of calories (an average of about 100 calories per mile), so you would think that would lead to weight loss. However, some new runners find that they don't lose weight and some even gain weight. Others may lose a few pounds and then hit a weight loss wall. There's no simple answer here because there could be a few things going on. First, it could be you're eating more calories than you need.
