The intensity levels needed to successfully train for a triathlon or marathon eventually take their toll on a body in some way. Professional athletes included in training at this degree need to look at their nourishment, overall body conditioning, and also recovery too maintaining to day with the training for the event itself. As training levels intensify and athletes start to cover longer distances and increase speed, muscle healing in between sessions becomes vital.
After a day or more of therapy, many strains, pressures or other injuries will begin to heal. But if your pain or swelling does not reduce after 48 hours, make an appointment to see your medical professional, or in an emergency situation see your regional casualty division.
