Yoga pose for triathlon transition

treeposeSo I put new shoelaces in my running shoes before Sunday’s triathlon — you know, the kind that lets you slip your shoes on without tying them — and while they did save me from tying the laces I still found myself dropping to the ground to pull on my shoes because they were too snug to easily slip into.

But … what if I had the kind of balance that allowed me to pick up a shoe and put it on while standing on one foot? Even better, what if I had enough strength to hold that posture even after a swim?

I’m no yoga expert, but I’m thinking that adding tree pose to my rather limited repertoire would help keep my butt off the ground during transition.

Here’s a video that may prove helpful.
