IS­SUE 89 / FE­BRU­ARY 2016

Triathlon Plus - - Welcome -

But we’ve still got our eyes on the prize, and so should you. Max­imise your chances of suc­cess in 2016 by fol­low­ing train­ing coach Phil Mosley’s top ad­vice on how to plan ahead, leav­ing noth­ing to chance and en­sur­ing you reach race day in top form (p38).

For many, 2016 will be the year you chal­lenge your­self to take on a triathlon or a new dis­tance, in which case turn to our be­gin­ners’ bike test (p74) to see which steed could send you fly­ing out of tran­si­tion. If nerves are hold­ing you back from tak­ing the next step, read the re­as­sur­ing words from our Cardiff Triath­letes’ coaches who have golden ad­vice on how to avoid big race jit­ters (TZ p5).

For hard­ened triath­letes in your win­ter pain cave, check out th­ese HIIT turbo ses­sions (TZ p11) and some im­por­tant con­di­tion­ing ex­er­cises to help you with your swim (TZ p8).

What­ever your goals for 2016, we’re here to help you ev­ery step of the way.

So let’s make it a year for new chal­lenges, per­sonal suc­cess and lots of fin­isher medals! As a new year be­gins, it’s a good op­por­tu­nity to take some time to re­flect. Which is why in this is­sue we’ve cho­sen to take a look over the last year’s events (p10) in­clud­ing who and what made the head­lines in the triathlon world. Plus, we’ve rounded up the best gear of the year (p30).
