Trust Your Body

Posted: 14 Feb 2012 11:42 AM PST
As triathletes, most of us are fairly Type A personalities. We're driven. We like to have a plan, check off our workouts, check off our goals and always be pushing forward towards something bigger and better. Data is, of course, a fairly useful tool. We all use it, whether it be our speed or power on the bike, our given heart rate for various workouts, or pace for running. The data allows us to track our progress, see improvements and ultimately get faster. That said, there is a time and a place for using data and sometimes, when racing, it's useful to turn the numbers off and purely listen to your body. (Photo of Kelly Williamson courtesy
