The weekly long run is a ritual every runner has done, but did you know there are many ways to use those hours on the road?
Circuit training can burn fat, tone muscle, and give you the health and strength you need.
Now that I’ve finally ticked off all the races I set out to do this year, it’s time for me to head into the offseason. This year more than any other year I am reminded of how important rest is. Let me tell you why.
It’s Challenge Vietnam race week!
Last week was a bit of a blur as I battled jet lag, catching up on work, and making sure all systems are go for next week’s trip to Nha Trang for Challenge Vietnam.
In looking forward to my upcoming trip to Vietnam, I look back at the news that I missed mentioning… and the food that I explored on my past trip.
A little break from routine was just what I needed to decide on racing priorities moving forward.
The past week was about going to Ironman 70.3 Philippines and discovering my love for endurance sport whether competing or supporting, and a reminder that long-term enjoyment of the sport depends upon staying healthy.
With five weeks to go until Challenge Vietnam and having missed the past two weeks of training, it’s tempting to try cramming as much as possible to get back up to speed.
