Hydrotherapy after competition

A few photos from the team workout in a swimming pool after competition. It included slow jogging (forwards and sideways), hig knee jogging, striding, jump and rotate drills. This is often a useful training session for recovery and relaxation. Variations of this exercise may be useful for rehabilitation of lower limb injuries.

Salomon X-Trail Run 2009

Here are some photos from the Salomon X-trail Run 2009 event which drew a crowd of 900 entries from all walks of life. Congratulations to the event organisers. There was supply of water for rehydration and orange cuts too. The Gardenia van was also there to provide tasty buns for immediate carbohydrate intake for recovery. The photos show the RICE treatment that comes in really useful for first-aid and some wound care for abrasions suffered by some of the participants. Remember, do not ice for more than 20 minutes and use gloves if there are open wounds.
