During quarantine, most of us have a lot of free time left to spend at home. Although the situation can be very frustrating, it gives us the opportunity to discover a great variety of new things. For example, triathlon training at home inspires people to be very creative in creating exercises. Probably, the core stability of the triathletes is better than ever before, as well. Next to training at home, there are other ways to enjoy the different aspects of endurance sports.
