The reality is that what we are doing is entirely different to what an able-bodied athlete is doing. So we set out to find a way to get a better comparison of our data!
One of the things we've found challenging about doing this triathlon is how little information there is out there in terms of the how-to's. ... So our plan is to try to change that!
If you've been following along this week, you may be wondering why we would go to so much effort to do something so few people even attempt?
So what exactly does it mean for us to compete in a race like this?
There are actually very few athletes out there competing in tandem triathlon of this nature. ... There isn't even a category for this type of triathlon racing because there are so few of us.
So we've been gearing up for a while now, but the big day is now just one week away!
There is this concept in eastern religions of yin and yang. It's this idea of finding balance between two opposites: things like dark/light; work/rest; tense/release; hard/easy; do/be. And just like we understand that we need muscle pairs to, for example, lift our arm up and then bring our arm back down, these eastern knowledge traditions understand that there can be no dark without a light; no work without rest; no tension without release; no hard without easy; no doing if there is no space to simply be.
