1. Editor's Note

The winner of the"Best Forum Post" contest is Sarah, who wins for her post on stupid rules (no cartwheeling shot putters) and for divulging some minor games resources. Congratulations!

You may have had problems accessing the discussion forum. It was an error on our end, but it has been corrected and you should all now have access to the forum.

I recommend that you check out the forum...and even better, participate. It is already becoming a super resource. PE Update Members can see the forum at: Discussion Forum

Because of these problems, we'll run the Best Forum Post contest one more time, with the final winner being presented three weeks from now, on April 3. The prize is the eBook, Tricks of the Trade for the Sprints, Hurdles and Relays.

If you're not already a member, we hope you'll come on board. You can get more information at the following: Membership Information

I hope you enjoy this issue of PE Tips of the Week!

    6. Pick of the Week

    Each week, I'll highlight an article that I think is really useful. The article will be available to non-members of the website for a week, and to members forever!

    This week's pick is:

    It's not uncommon to put some ice on an injury, then just forget about it. But that's not a good idea. Icing too long can increase inflammation - just the opposite of the desired effect. Here's how long is too long.
