Bertha started running late in life some 14 years ago and got into triathlons 5 years ago. Her biggest sports accomplishment to date is taking 2nd place at the 2018 ITU World Triathlon Championship in Australia. What is her secret? Bertha starts each day with a healthy breakfast and then off for a run through her neighborhood or cycling with her team. Pre-pandemic she would end her day swimming at a near by pool. She uses IceeNOW after every training and gets weekly massages to help rest her muscles. In the past she has suffered from leg and knee injuries so now she makes sure to properly stretch before...
To build back some power in her stride after pregnancy, Neely has been doing a lot more speed focused workouts and loves a good hill repeat workout.
To prevent injury Neely has a 7 step routine: 1. dynamic/activation; 2. warm-up; 3. strides; 4. drills; 5. race/workout; 6. cool down; 7. recovery stretch/strength.
Post baby, Neely says her shins have become a problem spot. If she feels some tightness, she uses the R8 from Roll Recovery followed by IceeNow. She finds the IceeNow works great on her feet and lower legs.
