I use my Norma Tec every day for injury prevention and to maximize performance. My schedule is extremely hectic and I am traveling almost every other weekend for half of the year. When I am not racing, I am training 20-25hours a week with large amount of stress on my lower body. After getting to try the Norma Tec recovery system I knew I had to have one so that I would be able to quickly recover from a session so that the next session would be equally as good.
Many athletes think the key to success is training hard. I agree with this to some point-there are no short cuts. However, there are things that can put an endurance athlete many steps backwards. The main setback is usually injury—frequently the Achilles, knee, calf. So far in my career I have not struggled with any type of injury. I credit this to my focus on the importance of recovery. I encourage anyone looking to take a step up in training to try out the Norma Tec recovery boots.
Norma Tec just came out with a more affordable set of boots called the MVP. You can check them out at www.normatechsports.com
