Through the finish line.

As many of our readers have probably noticed, our blog posts have been less frequent as of late, and I’m sure some of you are wondering why that is. The fact of the matter is, training for major events, like the Ironman (70.3 or 140.6), a marathon, ultra-marathons, or really anything over the half-marathon mark, can really take over your life! … Read More

While perusing the internet over the weekend, I stumbled upon a YouTube video explaining the differences between the sprinter and the marathoner.  The video shared the differences between fast and slow twitch muscles while also explaining the way these differences affect your physical appearance and performance.
