Books:

Natural Running Book

Natural Running Book

I’m about half way through this book. I didn’t learn too much in the first few chapters. But now I’m into some more interesting material that focuses on drills and biomechanics.

Swimming Pools:
Traveling and want to find a pool? Check out www.swimmersguide.com or download an app called swimradar (includes international locations too). 

And while we’re on the topic of swimming; here is a worthy video to check out that takes a look at technique.

Tight IT band?
Try foam rolling. Here is a video on how to.

Strava

Looking for a free cycling app for your smart phone? I downloaded Strava and have been using it for a few months now. For someone who hasn’t had a cycling computer in ages (probably about 10 years), it is nice to have some data to look at. And data that is easily accessible and easy to understand. You can set up segments. A segment is a stretch of road (or trail for that matter) that you and all other riders that ride that stretch will be automatically timed and ranked each time it is ridden.
