|Managing Injury Will Help Avoid This On Race Day|
The most common triathlon injuries are related to overuse. Overuse is a condition that results from training the muscles to a point where they are unable to repair properly prior to subsequent training. As a result of the weakness additional strain is placed on ligaments, tendons, and joints. Eventually these body parts fail and pain, inflammation, and trauma occurs. Training through these types of injuries can lead to permanent damage or increasing pain that causes the athlete to take significant time away from intense training. Injuries afflict all three of the triathlon disciplines and each instance will require careful consideration and the input of health and fitness professionals.
