Stellar job Juan! You're totally right about bricks and Fartleks helping your transition. If this Oly, despite the difficulty, provided your with a lot of satisfaction - I hope it is the first of many. If not - there are other races to do.

Either way - enjoy a nice bottle of wine! You've earned it!

I am constantly tinkering with my bike setup but in the morning, my fingertips can just barely touch my kneecaps upon bending forward. Should I stretch my hamstrings?

At the age of 44, I am experiencing extreme pain in my hip. I have been trying simple stretching and have found no relief.

The boat was being tossed around. Someone noted that there were whitecaps on the waves. Another guy said, “This is going to be challenging.” I began to wonder what he meant by 'challenging'.

I quickly browsed an article in Men's Health that talked about doing a triathlon, and how it wasn't really that hard. With a "tsk!" I quickly turned the page while thinking, "Yeah, right!"

What we see is that people want to look good – in a bad way. Our society paints a picture of beauty. But nobody wants to really go back to basics of diet and exercise as the fountain of youth.
