It’s tempting to only think of the big muscle movements in swimming, biking, or running. But body parts don't work in isolation. A bunch of small movements work together to create “big” actions, like walking, running, swimming, or cycling. This is something that is commonly referred to as “cross-body connection" and it SHOULD heavily influence your strength, mobility, and flexibility routines.

(Yes, you read that right... 200 miles on the trainer!)
Social distancing couldn't keep Jose Santiago from accomplishing his goal! He put on an incredible display of tenacity, mental strength, and commitment when he completed the Cross-Florida 200 mile ride on his trainer! Way to go, Jose!!!
Team MPI Athlete Weekend Highlights!
We're Celebrating Everyday Commitment To Goals!
One thing we can all learn from this "stay-at-home" season is how to enjoy the little things and celebrate the long-term commitment to goals and dreams. There's an old book title that accurately sums up what this season probably feels like: "a long obedience in the same direction."
We aren't sure when we'll return to racing (or some semblance of normal life), but we are so proud of our athletes who continue to take steps in the direction of their long-term goals! We're going to continue celebrating all the big and small ways you're getting it done. Here are just a few members of the amazing Team MPI family highlights from this past weekend!
Head over to our Facebook page to share your photos! You might appear in next week's newsletter!
Michael and Cortney Bell conquered the oppressive Texas heat and finished the IRONMAN VR3 race!
Mary Houck (and team) enjoyed some "nature therapy" with an 8-mile hike into Dexter Lake.
Jason Freeman didn't let a little rain stop him from getting out and getting his run in this weekend!
Team MPI Group Zwift Ride
Time: 6:20 pm to 7:45 pm Eastern time
Join a virtual group bike workout with Team MPI athletes and coaches!
Because Zwift doesn't quite support group structured workouts, there are a few extra steps you'll need to take to join the party. Here's how:
1. Follow Coach Kelly Ryan in the Zwift companion app
2. Coach Kelly will invite you to the ride and you can "join" the meetup on Zwift
3. While you're spinning, waiting for the group to start, click Menu and select the workout (6 WK Beginner FTP BUILDER-WEEK 5- Day 1- Foundation).
4. You should now be back with the group, waiting for the workout to begin.
The Zwift workout will start at 6:30 pm EST. The Zoom call will begin at 6 pm. Contact your coach for the Zoom link to join the event!
😨 Post-Workout Comment of the Week 😅
"My hair is now so crazy due to not getting it cut that I have no problem with people keeping the right distance. I look like some sort of wild woman!"
- Athlete coached by Coach Laura
Team MPI athlete post-workout comments are an important part of athlete-coach communication. They are often quite revealing and humorous in the aftermath of a workout gone well or awry!
