At a ract it’s always busy and it’s easy to forget something. To avoid this we’ve assembled a checklist for you:
Two weeks before your race are very important. These PEAK-weeks (if they appear in your training schedule) shall bring your body to your personal peak of your effectiveness (PEAKING). Please stick to your training schedule and don’t overstrain you.
You will be confronted with reduced extents in your last week to recover before your race.
Before a race most of the athletes are nervous because this is what you trained for. Many athletes do not come to their peak performance, because they fall into certain traps.
If you plan to participate at a triathlon race, then you should get used to trainings in a row. You should get used to it in your training phase and combine different training units.
So you get used to race-like conditions, you train under a race-like load and “last but not least” you practice the cloth-changing (that’s not so easy :-). Don’t forget to take additional nutrition with you.
Just go to your logbook and take a look at the report named “Can I finish the competition?”.
This shows you how much you have trained in this season and how much you should have trained.
If you stay in the area of 80% – 110% of your planned training extent, the signal stays Green. This means you can finish the next main competition.
If you simply want to do your training. No problem!
Our TriCoreTraining system also works without defined races, but it’s more exciting with goals – believe me :-).
You should do races, if you want to train systematically. One or more main races are the goal of your training season and your training plan will bring you there. The TriCoreTraining system allows you to define 3 main races per season and as many unimportant races as you want (they can help you checking your fitness).
