SPEED THROUGH TRANSITIONS
keep it simple
Be a minimalist in transition! Don’t eat or drink (see my nutrition tips on p45), change your clothes more than you need to, wave to fans or comb your hair... you’re in a race, so be fast!
Your transition area should not look like a Himalayan base camp, either. Minimise the amount of gear and clutter by practising what can be eliminated and laying out the stuff you really need in a way that makes it easy to find and use. Remember that most races have more aid stations than you will (or should ever) need, so when in doubt, get rid of it! Transitions are opportunities to gain time on your rivals, so take full advantage of them.
