Triathalon racing is a complex sport that just looks easy. What you don’t know is that there was a lot of preparation for the average triathlete
The run. The swim. And, the biking.
These three aspects of triathalon racing will need to be carefully understood and developed.
You will need to first prepare your mind for the struggle that lies ahead.
You will then need to prepare your body and make it as nutritiously sound as can be.
Then, you will need to condition it to the elements that you will test it on. How do you do all of these things?
Training and coaching. Be prepared to spend a lot of energy and time if your goal is to be competitive, but even if your desire is just to take part in triathalons and stay healthy this still is true.
It starts at the beginning. You will need to shed those extra pounds and become a lean, muscled body.
Get the proper coaching. If not a physical trainer there are clubs to join and books to read that will assist your training.
You will need to learn how to eat the right foods to fuel your body when you need it the most.
Knowing when to eat the carbs and when to eat the protein is important, ie. Consuming the proper nutritution to help you train and race.
The good news is that triathalon racing is a sport in which you can constantly push yourself and training for, plus you end up in great shape and you generate some great friendships.
