Summer workouts

In the Summer, I spend more time outside. Colorado is sunny and beautiful all year. I like to bike to the pool and take a dip in the outdoor swimming pool, which is just a few blocks from my house. I can't resist the diving board or the slide! My legs, arms and core get a super duper workout. Yoga in the park is one of my favorite things to do. It's a free event 2 times a month with about 700 plus people. The instructors are great and I get to do a different yoga style each time. Its an exhilarating experience. The DJ's and music get me energized!

WHAT ARE YOU TRAINING FOR?

 As an athlete, I enjoy sports of all kinds, but I have my favorites.  As a child I enjoyed riding my bike and playing football with the neighborhood kids.  In high school I played tennis and volleyball.  I went on to play tennis in college, but funny enough that was not my ‘favorite’ sport. My favorite sport is big wave body-boarding and surfing. I don’t live in a place to enjoy that as often as I’d like, but it’s a compromise I am making for a bigger goal.

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.
