Does running cause injuries? Will you become disabled at a faster rate as you age if you run?
No say researchers at Stanford University!
Use the Pool to Improve Your Open Water Performance!
– The pull buoy is a tool you can use to strengthen the upper body swim muscles(Pectoralis Major& Latissimus Dorsi). But did you know it can be used to simulate the bouncy of a wetsuit as well? Use it for prolonged periods of time to help with open water training.

– Switching to the small chain ring will result in higher rpms. Why? It reduces the lever arm. The chain moves along a smaller circumference. The gear ratio can be the same as using the big chain ring but the chain does not need to move as far along the ring.

– Try running on the treadmill in just your socks to feel the midfoot strike(forefoot landing and lightly on the heel). Our heels(Calcaneus were not designed for a heel strike). Warning: Do this for only periods of 1-2 minutes.
