Tara Davis Transfers To Texas, Will Sit Out Season

Former Georgia All-American and 60m hurdles world junior record holder Tara Davis has transferred to Texas, the 19-year-old announced on her Instagram on Wednesday.

However, due to transfer rules, Davis will not be eligible to compete for the Longhorns until the 2019-2020 track season. Transfers who are not released by their previous schools must sit out a year of competition.  

Davis’ transfer process has been a whirlwind since her former coach at Georgia, Petros Kyprianou, tweeted on Dec. 13 that the hurdler/jumper was headed to the University of Texas. Despite Kyprianou’s claim, Davis said at the time that she had not signed with the Longhorns and had only visited the school. Then, Davis released a video on Dec. 18 in which she stated Georgia was not granting her release to allow her to compete for another school this season.

Davis will be coached by new Texas boss Edrick Floréal, who has a long history of coaching superstars in the hurdles. The former Kentucky head coach helped Jasmine Camacho-Quinn (100m hurdles) and Sydney McLaughlin (400m hurdles) win NCAA titles in 2018, and his professional stable includes 100m hurdles world record holder Keni Harrison and 2017 400m hurdles world champion Kori Carter.

Understanding Resting And Maximum Heart Rate

Throughout the past years, business has combined the health and technology industries to create a society where fitness tracking has become a regular pastime. People have become more invested in their health and want fun devices to assist in that. These smartwatches and apps have made it easier than ever to know what your exact heart rate is, how many hours of sleep you get, or how far you run. However, with all the knowledge presented to you, it’s equally important to actually understand what those numbers mean to best achieve all of your fitness goals. A big part of this is knowing the different active and resting heart rate zones. 

Pre-Run And Post-Run Stretches

Stretching before and after your run can add a lot of benefits to your exercise routine. It allows you to warm up your muscles and safely progress into your run and also provides your body time to cool off and continue to activate your muscles. It’s important to set aside a couple of minutes before and after exercising so you can make sure you’re taking proper care of your body. 

The History Of Track And Field

Track and field has been around since the start of the Olympics in Ancient Greece in 776 B.C. It was created alongside religious events and celebrations for the Greek gods where men (no women were allowed) could show off their athletic abilities. From there it spread to the Romans who continued the games until the Christian Emperor Theodosius I banned them in 394 A.D. because of their ties to pagan beliefs.
