Ep. 132: IM medical misadventures/Heath Dotson on aero dos and don'ts

In this episode:

What injuries are most common while training for an Ironman and how can they be avoided? How often do athletes present to the medical tent at an IM event and what problems are they going with? On the Medical Mailbag we review recent research that explores a wealth of data to answer those questions. Plus, an interview with national cycling champion and self-described aero geek Heath Dotson on what kinds of trends make sense for age groupers to consider for their own set ups and what they should just skip.
