Training for a Triathlon

Training for a triathlon is a huge feat within itself.

You don’t want to fall prey to some major mistakes while training for a triathlon before you even start. Here are four simple tips to get you on the “right foot”!

1) Too Much
More is not always better. Be realistic the basic programme provided will get you there. If you have a demanding job, a life and would still like to have some friends after the triathlon, keep to what is required.

Classic mistake two is thinking that what ever training is not enough. Once you have reached the race distances, the buzz on the day will get you through the event.

3) Too Intense
Not only does your average Type-A Exec go too fast training but they also tend to put in a lot of effort at the start of the program, do not miss sessions and end up injured or burnt out before the event.

Final Note
When you get to the event remember what your goals were at the start. If your aim was just to finish don’t get sucked into having to beat someone else or a time. Finishing a triathlon is a great personal achievement in itself. Have some fun and enjoy the post race activities.
