KNOW YOUR PACE. BE RE­AL­IS­TIC

Triathlon Magazine Canada - - DEPARTMENTS -

Pro ath­letes prac­tice ex­e­cut­ing the dis­tance and met­rics they are aim­ing for on race day in­clud­ing pace, watts and heart rate at, or close to, race dis­tance across all three dis­ci­plines. The pace ath­letes can hold on the bike for longer than four hours will likely feel very easy in the first hour, but by hour four or five will feel very hard. Fig­ure out what that pace is by ex­pe­ri­enc­ing it in train­ing. Know­ing your pace will also help you gauge how long you will be out there which is nec­es­sary for tip No. 2.
