Dancing Our Way from Festival to Boot Camp with Tri-Running!

Dancing Our Way from Festival to Bootcamp
The countdown to Festival International de Louisiane may officially be over today, but as for our favorite festival event, there are still a few days on the clock. The Courir du 5k, the Festival-sponsored run/walk, is this Saturday! With just enough time to register, Festival invites you and your loved ones to "run, walk, skip or jump to the finish line," and Tri-Running Lafayette seconds that motion!
This race begins and ends in the downtown area, which will be radiating with international music, lots of sunshine, and energizing festival vibes. Dancing through the race is absolutely an option, but that doesn't necessarily mean you should wear your dancing shoes. Grab your favorite pair of running shoes instead! A pair that is supportive and lightweight will get you across the finish line without injury. Don't have a pair like that? Well... that is our specialty.

After you've boogied your way through Downtown Lafayette, make your way to Girard Park. Real Fit is hosting a Boot Camp Mania from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. to jumpstart the boot camp season. For more information on this event, you can click here. These workouts are a popular summer trend, and they usually consist of high-intensity circuits mixed with cardio and agility training. They are not referred to as boot camps without reason. They are no joke! We commend and support everyone who aims to push their body to the next level in the coming months, but we urge you to also take the proper precautions.

Wearing the appropriate shoes may be more important in a boot camp workout setting than in any other. We usually recommend a cross-training shoe, but it is really best for you to come in to the store and take advantage of your free gait-analysis. Every foot and foot strike is different, and we at Tri-Running know this better than many. Let us take a look and guide you in the direction of an injury-free workout, no matter the intensity! 


Here are a few links to local boot camps going on this summer:
Have fun, train hard and, of course, Happy Festival! 
Look good feel good, right?
Tri-Running Lafayette is waiting for you.

Did you know?
Running shoes should be changed out every 300-500 miles. Even though they may still look new on the outside, they are losing support on the inside!

Don't worry...we've kept those records for you!
