6 Be Pre­pared

Triathlon Magazine Canada - - FEATURE -

Triathlon re­quires or­ga­ni­za­tion. The mul­ti­plic­ity of the sport calls for plan­ning and lo­gis­tics. Add in nu­tri­tional con­sid­er­a­tions, strength work­outs and phys­i­cal ther­apy ses­sions and the cal­en­dar fills up quickly. The more pre­pared you can be with race sched­ul­ing, train­ing gear, re­cov­ery modal­i­ties and travel plans, the more you will en­joy the process of the sport. Spread your races out far enough to prop­erly pre­pare, ex­e­cute and re­cover from each. Re­view your race cal­en­dar on a reg­u­lar ba­sis so you can an­tic­i­pate what needs to get done be­fore race day. This might in­clude food prepa­ra­tion, me­chan­i­cal ad­just­ments on your bike, in­vest­ing in new gog­gles, work­ing out the kinks in new rac­ing flats or fix­ing a tear in your wet­suit. Be pre­pared so your fo­cus is on ex­e­cu­tion not dam­age con­trol.
