Key Ingredients for a Successful Triathlon Experience

KEY INGREDIENTS FOR A SUCCESSFUL TRIATHLON EXPERIENCE

• Do workouts based on time, not distance. Distance will come with time!

• Keep intensity low to moderate on all long swim, bike and run days.

• Always ease into each workout and cool down towards the end of each workout.

• Train with a friend or with a Sport Specific Group, i.e. Master’s Swim Team, local running club, local bike club. This will faster establish a strong foundation on which to build upon come Race Day...and make for a more enjoyable training program.

• Train on the Runner’s Edge-TOBAY course, or on a similar terrain with hills, once every two or three weeks.

• Do at least one or two open water swims - there are no lines at the bottom of Oyster Bay!

• Keep a training log and use it as a reference to past workouts and as a motivational tool for future workouts.

• Get bike properly fitted; comfort is paramount.

• Run in sneakers that best accommodate your foot strike; seek out a responsible specialty running store.

• MOST IMPORTANTLY - Gain support from your family and close friends before taking on such a training program. Your ability to deal with daily life happenings like jobs, personal chores and other responsibilities and commitments will be less stressful if everyone in your life is on board!

 

HEALTHFULLY,

Coach Jose Lopez, President
