Running Economy

Hey Tritons! We all want to become better athletes. Aside from your skiing, computrainer rides, swimming routines, etc. Make some time for resistance training (strength and muscular coordination), plyometrics (improved muscular power), and stretching as this will assist in your running economy.

As far as your next triathlon race: think about this for your next T2. Make sure you slow your bike pace down a little bit before you start your run. Research has proven that finishing the bike at high intensity leads to an unfavorable run performance.

If you need some more assistance with the above mentioned exercises or other recovery methods, please let me know.
