How to Prepare for the Triathalon
Research the exact requirements of the triathlon you will be entering, including length of each segment, terrain, previous times of competitors in your skill range, expected weather conditions, support offered and any special rules.
Purchase or secure all of the equipment necessary for the triathlon, including bike, wetsuit, goggles, shoes, socks, shorts, shirts and helmet.
Create a training plan that addresses each area of the event, and set up a schedule for training for each segment.
Create a periodization plan that considers the number of weeks or months you have prior to your event.
Practice making transitions between events.
Create and follow a diet plan that decreases fat and increases calories, including lean protein, complex carbohydrates and water.
