I have to confess: Even though I’m well aware of its importance, I don’t stretch as often as I should. I’ve always been flexible, so not stretching every day didn’t seem to have much of an impact on me. But over the years, and with more muscle added to my frame, I’ve noticed that I’m not nearly as flexible as I used to be.
Q: Coconut water is supposed to be a great alternative to sports drinks. Are you a fan? Do you use any other coconut products?
Amy Marsh answers:
Coconut is an amazing tropical fruit enjoyed throughout the world for its delicious taste and remarkable nutritional benefits—including an abundance of vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids. Healthy and versatile, coconut comes in many forms, from shredded bits that can be used for baking to hydrating water that quenches thirst after a tough workout.
Q: What are the different distances in triathlon?
Amy Marsh responds:
This is a great question as there are many different distances in triathlon to accommodate different skill levels.
People often ask us if we’ve done a full triathlon. My husband and I jokingly say, “Yes, we always do a full triathlon—we do the whole swim, the whole bike and the whole run.” But really, people want to know if we’ve raced the full Ironman in Hawaii, which is the most famous race. (And the answer to that is yes, we’ve both raced it, and I’ll be heading back there this October to compete!)
