- Time to recover:30 DaysTreatment Name:other 3rd party provider(If third party provider not in list enter here):Your Review:When I first started participating in Triathlons I experienced calf strains. I continued to have the issue with both calfs off and on for 2 years. While training for my first 70.3 race I experience a strain in my right calf while running in week 3 of my 20 week training program. I came across Airrosti Therapy for deep myofacial tissue release. This treatment help me overcome & prevent calf strains in a very short time period. They also incorporated the use of KT tape to help support the calf. I would highly recommend this treatment for calf strains along with icing and stretching.
- Injury Type:Time to recover:3 WeeksTreatment Name:Your Review:Prior to participating in Triathlons I was a casual jogger. While training for my first 70.3 race I started to experience knee pain along the outer edge and in front of the knee cap. I was able to complete the training and race but experienced the pain throughout the race. Upon signing up for my first Ironman race I came across "The Pain Free Runner" book by Julie Donnelly. Her methodology is that the common cause for joint pain is due to uneven muscle pulling. In her book she outlines strength exercises and trigger points to work on to help eliminate the pain based on location. In this book I discovered that the pain is due to the IT Band being irritated and a good strength exercise to overcome this issue is side step ups. This exercise along with general leg strength exercises have rid me of knee pain.

- Time to recover:18 MonthsTreatment Name:Your Review:For me I found the best treatment to get over the issue was relieving tension in my hip which was the root cause of my issue. Tightness in my hip was causing uneven muscle pulling down to my foot. This put more strain on the peroneal tendon causing pain along the outside area of my foot. I attempted to use a walking boot to isolate my foot in an attempted to reduce inflammation. However, attempting to walk in the boot further irritated my hip, which caused more issues.
- Injury Type:Time to recover:3 WeeksYour Review:I was experiencing Hip Tightness & burning sensation in my left hip. Ironically the same side I had issues with my foot injury. After receiving A.R.T treatments on my left hip the tightness and burning sensation subsided. Also noticed that the irritation in my left foot also started to subside. I now understand that the tightness in my hip was the root cause of the issue I experienced with Peroneal Tendonitis in my left foot.

- Time to recover:3 WeeksYour Review:Many swimmers have inherent ligamentous laxity and often will have multidirectional shoulder instability - essentially, more movement in the joint. Swimmers develop muscle imbalances where the adductors and internal rotators of the arm over develop (due to the nature of swimming). Unfortunately, this leaves a relative weakness of the external rotators and scapular stabilisers - simply because they don’t get used as much. Consequently, this muscle imbalance overuse and/or poor technique results in an anterior capsule laxity. These all culminate and allow the humeral head to move forward and up thereby, compromising the subacromial space (where the supraspinatus and biceps tendons run through) causing an irritation/impingement - Swimmer’s Shoulder. Active Release Therapy on my shoulder and surrounding areas provided immediate relieve. Strength training was key to overcome the imbalance muscle pulling which was the root cause of the issue.
- Time to recover:4 weeksTreatment Name:Trinetwork 3rd Party Provider:Your Review:While training for my first ironman I experience shoulder pain while swimming. I attempted stretching and icing the shoulder which provide temporary relief but not long-standing. I found Graston treatment around the injured area to provide some relief. Graston by itself did not relieve the issue long term. I found active release therapy along with strength training to be more effective.
- Time to recover:7 DaysTreatment Name:Trinetwork 3rd Party Provider:Your Review:While preparing for a 70.3 race I strained my calf 30 days prior to the race. I was sidelined and was not able to run. I tried Graston & A.R.T that usually does the trick to release and relax the muscle if caught early on. In this case I was still having issues with only 2 weeks out from my race. My coach recommended I try a different technique called dry needling and introduced me to Kinetik Chain. I worked with Chris Babb to identify the issue and performed deep graston & A.R.T. In addition to Graston & A.R.T Dr. Webster performed Dry Needling to release the trigger points causing the calf to be tight. Dry needling is a skilled intervention that uses a thin filiform needle to penetrate the skin and stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points, muscular, and connective tissues for the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments. Not the most pleasant treatment but definitely work. Performed 2 treatments before heading out to my race. To my suprise I was able to run the full 13.1 miles with NO ISSUES. Get this the calf was not even sore the next day. Highly recommend this treatment.
- What nutrition issues, if any have you experienced while participation in Triathlons?:CrampingDiscipline Issue Occurs:CyclingWhat products or method did you use to overcome the issue?:Salt Lick Salt TabsComments Section:During cycling I use to experience cramping after 3 hours of riding. Taking Gatorade and other sport drinks alone did not resolve the issue. I started talking salt lick salt tabs on the bike to overcome cramping in my quads. Now I do not have to drink gatorade which upset my stomach. I typically take 4 salt tabs per hour and 6 oz of water intake every 10 minutes. This did the trick for me..
- What nutrition issues, if any have you experienced while participation in Triathlons?:RecoveryDiscipline Issue Occurs:Swimming, Biking, RunningWhat products or method did you use to overcome the issue?:Base AminoComments Section:While training for long distance endurance events I have always been challenged with getting proper amounts of nutrition for recovery. With taking Base Amino upon completing 4 plus hours of training I feel more energized and prepared for my workout the following day. The combination of ample amount of sleep & good nutrition with the addition of Base Amino I feel that my body is better able to naturally recover from strenuous exercise.
- What nutrition issues, if any have you experienced while participation in Triathlons?:GI IssuesDiscipline Issue Occurs:RunWhat products or method did you use to overcome the issue?:UCANComments Section:A common problem I have experienced since participating in half & full distance Ironman races is GI issues on the run. Through trial and error over the past 3 years I have come to the conclusion that my body does not do well with sugar intake. Specifically the variety of sugars taken in when consuming sport drinks, gels, and packaged nutrition on the bike. When starting the run I would experience the sensation of food sloshing around in my stomach. Then eventually feeling sick to my stomach and having to stop running to throw up and find the closest rest room. I recently starting using UCAN nutrition for both the bike and run. I found UCAN to be efficient in supplying my body with the nutrition needed without the side effects listed above. I found the best method of taking UCAN was in the form of gel consistency by mixing 6 scoops and 1 flavored nuun tab (for flavor) in a 8 oz fuel belt water bottle. I would take in 1 oz every 30 minutes. I recently completed Boulder 70.3 and had plenty of energy and no GI Issues. UCANs website has great tips and tricks for using their product. Also great blogs out there for
