My daughter is the trainer for the San Francisco Flamethrowers Ultimate Frisbee team that just won the AUDL championship in Montreal. Did you know that there was a professional ultimate frisbee league? At the end of the game which was streamed live, they interviewed the 3 co-captains, including the well known Beau Kittredge. Besides his athletic ability, Beau is known for his durability. He'll jump high for a catch, come down in a pile of bodies and come away unscathed. In the post game interview, he indirectly attributed his durability to track work, lifting and plyometrics. How does this relate to me?
- I've been injured quite a bit recently.
- I've recovered primarily due to specific (non-running) exercises.
- I've done track work recently.
- I've lifted in the past. I actually competed at powerlifting at one time.
- I've never done plyos, at least not with any regularity, and
- I haven't been lifting recently.
So the goal is now, get that first workout in and then use the evening workout to fill in the non-running gaps... or track work.
