Olympian and TrueSport Athlete Ambassador DeeDee Trotter shares how she stays fit while also letting her body recover in between track and field seasons.
It’s DeeDee Trotter, Olympic gold and bronze medalist, and TrueSport Athlete Ambassador. I just wanted to let you guys know what I do in my off season. Track and field has one of the longest seasons of most sports, and we go literally from October all the way into the end of August. So, when I get my time off, I don’t do a lot of running. But I do stay active. So, for example, Chloe.
Chloe keeps me very active, she’s a little camera shy, but she keeps me so active, we go out, we take walks, we have fun, and in addition to doing fun stuff with Chloe, I go out and I hit all the fun things like swimming, I go play basketball sometimes, I like to go and just keep myself on the go. I am just never in the house, you got to stay active, you guys, you got to keep moving.
So, when track’s over for me, I may not run a lot, but I’m definitely on the go.
