It’s race day. The gear checklist has been checked and double checked. You had enough sleep, ate breakfast, and have everything ready to go after setting up in transition. Or do you really?
Swim. Bike. Run. Strength train. Yoga. Drive the kids to school. Make dinner. The list goes on and on. However, what should be penciled in is home recovery to stay healthy and improve performance.

Olympic silver medalist and Ironman world champion Michellie Jones was inducted into the Australian Triathlon Hall of Fame in Melbourne on Thursday.
“It’s definitely an honor to be considered for induction,” Jones said in a statement about the induction. “It’s a great reminder of all the achievements in your sport. To actually be inducted will be extra icing on the cake on my sporting career.”
