Thank you for getting my "old body" in shape. Last year and during my first triathlon this year, my knees and hip area (sciatic) gave me a lot pain. The last two seasons during training they would also bother me while doing the run and sometimes the bike.
Having you work on me for 6 weeks before my last triathlon "Escape from Alcatraz" seemed to really help. As I ran the grueling 8 mile portion of my race, neither my hip area or knees bothered me during or after my race. I was tired but no pain. This was the best I have felt during any of my runs, practice or events.
Thank you again, I'm sure I will see you in the future."
