Take 5: Articles for the Week of 5/3/2010

I had to skip a couple of weeks of sharing articles since I’ve been to busy to do a whole lot of extra reading, but I’m glad to be back this week sharing some of what I have found.

A Beginners Guide To Buying A Bike – Active.com.   This covers all sorts of bikes, from top of the line Time Trials to Beach Cruisers.

Figuring out Your Sports Diet: Tips for Label Readers – Beginner Triathlete.com.  Your nutrition can really make you or break you.

Ironman Life: What It’s Really All About – Ironman.com.  A truly inspirational tale of an Ironman.

Take 5: Fitness Articles are a round up of interesting articles I have found over the course of the week.  We might talk about yoga, we might talk about strength training, we might talk about calories and nutrition.  We also might just talke a tour around blog land and look at what others are up to.  Articles were not necessarily published in the week of  this blog post.
