Tips on How to Survive a Tough Triathlon Anywhere In The World

SWIMMING

For novice swimmers to make a solid start on the leg, it’s best to start on the side of the masses, preferably on the outside of the first buoy.

If you are more experienced and looking for a fast swim, start next to someone you know is a bit faster than you. You’ll want to stay relaxed to the first buoy by drifting off his feet.

CYCLING

Uphill: Move forward in the saddle to keep the front wheel down, crouch low over the bars and pick your line carefully. A smooth pedal stroke is key, try to stay relaxed and controlled.

Downhill: Let your eyes lead the way, the faster you go, the further ahead you should look. Jump over obstacles, its better than slowing down and crawling over or around them, and in rocky terrain, it’ll save you from a snake-bite puncture.

RUNNING

Improve your strength by doing hill repeats and running over
broken terrain and slow surfaces. An even pace is the secret to
finishing a triathlon, save that sprint out of the starting blocks,
you’ll need all the energy in your body when your legs start to feel
rubber.
