Make Every Moment Count In Your Triathlon Transitions

Plan well

It is important to plan well for the transitions, whether it is your first triathlon or one of many. The first step is to practice transitioning during your training. These practices are known as  “bricks,” and they are as important for your preparedness for the transition during the actual event as they are for conditioning prior to the event.

For example, you would perform a swim practice followed immediately by a bike ride, or a bike ride with a run afterwards. This should give you a sense of what it will be like to exit the water, head for your bike, and get prepared to head out on that leg of the event, as well as returning from the bike ride and heading out for the run.

Don’t skimp on these training practices. If your event is a long one, you may even want to include a shorter triathlon as part of your training.
