Returning to training after Covid/Brandy Ramirez of SheStrong

In this episode:

The Omicron variant of Covid-19 has swept across the globe infecting record numbers of people including those with vaccinations. A question for many of those who are also endurance athletes is 'when and how can I safely return to training?' I am joined by Dr. Spencer Tomberg to review some recent guidelines in order to try and answer this important and timely question. Plus, an interview with Brandy Ramirez. Mother, wife, triathlete, triathlon coach, cancer survivor and founder of SheStrong a community of like minded women seeking to heal through shared experience and community. Brandy is spending her 2022 doing new things including her first full Ironman in Alaska and putting on her first ever race. She joins me to tell the whole story.
