This week: Tri Swap prep. The best recovery tool is a well developed aerobic system.

The annual Tri Swap is Saturday, October 1st and Sunday, October 2nd. We've hosted this swap meet and store sale for over 10 years, and it continues to be a popular way to buy or sell used and new gear. Remember to drop off your gently used gear at our store the week of the swap: anytime between September 26th and September 30th.

Training thoughts and updates:
What is the single, best tool for recovery? It's not a foam roller, supplement, or stretching routine. It's a strong, well developed aerobic system.
How do elite athletes train 20+ hours per week? By spending years building up to it, and thus developing a robust aerobic and neuromuscular system capable of handling the training load.
Training begets further training. It's simple, but not easy.
Quote that struck a chord:
“Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day; while failure is simply a few errors in judgment, repeated every day. It is the accumulative weight of our disciplines and our judgments that leads us to either fortune or failure.”
- Jim Rohn.

Train smart, and have a great week!
