Newsletter #15 February 2012

Newsletter Time! A lot has been going on at the Foot Knee Back Clinic this month. We have an exciting new relationship with the Element Racing series. Myself and other members of the clinic team will be providing Element Racings’ newsletter with quality material on injury prevention as it relates to triathlons. If you have not heard of Element Racing they are definitely a race series to check out. They have a number of off road triathlon races around the province. Racers have said nothing but great things about the series, and races continue to grow. We are very excited about this relationship!

I continue to write for the spectator and soon will be releasing a 4 part series for the Around the Bay road race. These articles will range from race tips, to injury prevention for common running injuries. I will post the projected dates for the articles below in the reminders-suggestions column.

It looks as though I will be running the Mississauga Half Marathon in May. I just got back from meeting with a friend and we have to decided to register. To be perfectly honest I am not a winter person. The thought of running in winter weather makes me cringe. Since the weather so far has been reasonable I have decided to take the plunge. I really hope this doesn’t back fire and I will be forced to run through 3 foot snow drifts. That being said I hear its a great race so I am looking forward to it.

RECIPE OF THE MONTH – Salmon with salsa, spinach salad and grilled asparagus

 Ingredients

Salmon Fillet

Salsa (make your own if you are motivated!)

Bunch of Asparagus

Spinach

Cucumber

Salt and Pepper

Balsamic Vinegar

Preparation: This meal is simple. Remember that you do not always need a traditional carbohydrate in every meal. I am a big fan of meals with a salad, a cooked vegetable and a lean meat. Although it may look light, trust me its filling. You can prepare the spinach salad ahead of time, with whatever vegetables you enjoy. For the salmon pan fry it for 1.5 minutes on both sides, then finish it in a 350 over for 15 minutes.  In the meantime you can either steam of grill your asparagus until fork tender. Fork tender is key, if over cooked it does not taste great. I like to add my salsa to the fish when it is still warm. A really great meal, ENJOY!
