Just starting out or been training for years? Either way read on to get all the information and knowledge you need to make your triathlon training effective and your racing successful. Gain the confidence that you’re doing the right training at the right time.
Training for a triathlon without really understanding what you need to do and why would be like suddenly deciding to build a house with no knowledge of what’s involved.
Would the house be worth living in? Probably not!
Would your triathlon training be effective? Probably not!
Do you want to:
There are so many different training programmes out there to choose from.
Magazines with ‘expert’ advice. Fellow-triathletes telling you what works for them. Websites with training programmes to download.
What if you don’t understand the jargon? Who do you listen to?
Do you just do a bit of swimming, cycling and running, train ‘hard’ and hope for the best?
Optimal training doesn’t come from a generic programme from a stranger
(no matter what their pedigree), or from mathematical formulas.
It comes from the application of a little knowledge, a lot of common sense and some experience.
Going back to that house analogy, we will be your architects! You will get the knowledge and tap into the experience you need to make your triathlon training the best it can be. Oh and the common sense? Well, that’s up to you!
You’ll find information on the science behind preparing for a triathlon, how to select the right training for you, as well as information on many other aspects of preparing to race – from nutrition to triathlon gear to how to get through transitions speedily.
Unfortunately we can’t work miracles…. There are no quick fixes or magic formulas, you still need to put in the training! “You get out what you put in”, but by putting in quality you’ll be confident you’ll race well.
Yes, race….that’s what all that training is for right?!
We’ll also help you understand how to race – tactics and tips to help you succeed on the day. Little things can make a big difference to the outcome of an event and we’ll guide you through the whirlwind of a race from preparation beforehand through to the race itself: start, transitions, the lot!
