Triathlon Tips for Beginners

By May 27th, 2022No Comments

If you are relatively new to physical activity, consult a doctor before embarking on a fitness routine and plan.

  • Listen to your body and run at a pace that is comfortable for you.
  • Pay attention to the event rules, regulations especially safety details and follow them.
  • Be positive as it keeps you mentally strong, even when you are tired.
  • Join or form a running group to gain tips and support.
  • If you are going to the event alone, have an “emergency” contact number with you
  • Stick to sports drinks, food and equipment that you have used regularly and don’t try anything new during the race event or on race event morning.
  • Learn more than one swim stroke. Good alternatives for open water swimming include sidestroke, breaststroke, and for some people, backstroke.
