We are a sitting society. We sit on our way to work. We sit at work. We sit on our way home from work. We sit at home. We sit when we socialize. We spend a lot of time on our ass, we often don't think twice about it and this could be impacting your triathlon performance.

I had my first trail race last Saturday. I was rightfully terrified. I had only managed a few runs in prep and couldn't go longer than 1.5kms (that's one and half, not 15) without pain. Uphill was the worst, and the prospects of facing a large elevation trail race were daunting.
Enthusiastically, I had registered months ago for the 10k option. On race day, I decided that was optimistic and bumped it down to 5km. My friends Alex and Alex (they have thus far resisted being called "Alex squared" or "double A" ) took off on the 10k route, leaving me with my painful thoughts for another 20 minutes or so before the start of the 5k effort.
