Plan Your Tri Season Properly
Plan Your Tri Season Properly

Glen Gore is here to give you some tips on how to plan your 2018 race season!

Here are Glen's top tips to make sure you plan your season easily and effectively:

 

  • Generally, you will start with the shorter distance events first before progressing to the longer ones. This ensures you don’t’ over do the training especially if you have had a few months off. Too far too hard too soon = injuries for sure
  • Set some goals in the pre-season – the long term goal will be a race that is say 4 to 6 months away
  • Short Term Race goals are smaller races you will use as stepping stones leading into the longer term goal – A Race is the best goal! Why? There is no better preparation than racing yourself into shape
  • Choose the races that perhaps best suit you (horses for courses as they say) in terms of climate, geography and which phases are notoriously easy or tough for a certain race. If you're a great swimmer but not so good on the bike, look for a race with a tough swim but an easier bike. Some races are flatter than others so don’t bite off more than you can chew, especially early on in the season
  • Always have a Plan B in place – if the longer term Plan A does not go quite right, you don’t want to waste all that gruelling training – a “spare” race back-up plan is the way to go
