The last Sunday of June was a big one in the summer race calendar with many runs, sportives and triathlons taking place all over the sunny north west.
The second race of the Castle triathlon series took place at Cholmondeley Castle in Cheshire over various distances and included races for children. The Chatsworth triathlon was also a warm one even in the Peak District, although the same cannot be said of the River Derwent, in which the swim took place.
There was also the Great Manchester Cycle, with three distances for those taking part to choose from; there were 13, 26 and 52 mile routes through Manchester, Salford and Trafford. The event was more unusual as it took place on closed roads, which is great for cyclists of all abilities.
For those into running, there was also the third Pennine 10k run, which is organised by the ‘Run for All’ foundation set up by the late Jane Tomlinson CBE. We hope that lots of money was raised for charity.
Congratulations to all our clients who took part in those events. Those of you who participated in any race in the heat at the weekend or had a long, hard training session may have (or will have tomorrow) sore legs, arms or backs. A sports massage is a great part of the recovery process; don’t forget that recovery is as important as training! This will help to reduce those aches and pains and ensure that you are refreshed to start training all over again for that next exciting event. Finally, please don’t leave any niggles or injuries in the hope that they will go away as it is always better to get them checked out as soon as possible. Our experienced physiotherapists can put your mind at rest.
