PRACTICING TRANSITIONS

Often the forgotten discipline in triathlon, mastering transitions are an easy way to shave time off your PB and get a jump on your close competitors. The wetsuit removal element of T1 can be built into your training by practicing a quick exit from your wetsuit following your open water swim sessions. Ensure a speedy T2, by practicing both running without socks in training (talc and vaseline applied appropriately can ensure this is pain/blister free) and practicing quickly getting into your run shoes. In short, practice makes perfect, so do try to schedule some T1 & T2 practice close to your races. If you are interested in really nailing your transitions, look out for our transition clinics or email Jas on info@triathlontrainingcentre.com to find out more.
