How I Fell Into Gravel (Not Literally, OK a Couple Times Literally)

January 26, 2022

After racing Ironman Finland in August, following a very front-loaded triathlon season, I felt like I really needed a break. So, when a friend told me about a gravel race half an hour from where I live, my first thought was “interesting”, which turned into “that could be fun”, and then “why not”???  And that is how I ended up signing up for my first gravel race – Big Sugar - less than two months before the race.


Interventions and Modifications to Train Past an Injury

January 17, 2022

In the previous edition of this “dealing with injuries/pain” blog series, I discussed some guidelines for when an athlete might be able to train through some sort of injury or pain, vs when a hard stop might be indicated.  But, even if an athlete is able to continue working through pain, that doesn’t mean that nothing should be done otherwise in order to try to address it, especially when pain levels fall into that “yellow zone” 3-5/10 range.  Plus, even low levels of pain aren’t fun, so even though we might not want to stop training entirely, of course we still want to make it better, and get past any injuries in order to progress in the longer term!  When niggles strike and maintaining fitness is important, some considerations can be made in order to decrease provocative stresses on the body, while still working towards goals.
