Winter Cycling Injury Prevention PhysiotherapyPosted on February 8th, 2011
Rob Harris has written an article for Tri247.com about how to handle training in winter conditions. The triathlon is one of the toughest sports out there, as former triathlete Rob knows only too well. As Tri247 says: “there are just two types of triathlete – those who are injured and those who are about to be injured!”
Well here at Harris & Ross we do our best to find that elusive third category and make sure you hit the start line in the best possible health.
In this article, Rob looks at the weather and the implications of the ice, snow and fog on training, plus a warning about spring – a month known in our trade as “knee season” and you can guess why!
“Every month or so I’ll be contributing an article in a practical, easy to understand way to help explain and guide you through the injuries most commonly associated with our sport and help demonstrate how you may best deal with them quickly and effectively in the hope that that this year, armed with a little more knowledge they don’t impact on your goals for the season!”
