Three Springtime Tips for Triathletes
After a winter of semi-hibernation, its time for triathletes to make the switch to spring/summer training. Before ripping off those legwarmers and hitting your local trail, read our three tips for springtime training:
Patience, runners, it’s a long season: Many triathletes take the winter season as a time to regroup and recover. If it’s been a few months, or even a few weeks since your last run, be careful risking an early-season injury by overexerting yourself. It is recommended runners do not increase their training by more than 10-15% in terms of mileage or time while returning to pre-winter status. In other words, patience is the key to avoiding injury.
April showers bring wet, slippery trails: We are all for enjoying nature and embracing the rain, but the dangers of running or biking on a wet, muddy trail can’t be overlooked. Aside from the obvious slip and fall hazard, hidden defects disguised by rain puddles can cause significant injury to the unsuspecting runner or biker. But don’t let a little rain stop you; find your nearest paved trail, track, or secure street to complete your wet springtime training.
Just because its sunny, doesn’t mean the water is warm: Whether you have been enjoying the thrill of an ice-cold swim or waiting for the sun to work its magic, spring is an exciting yet challenging time for swimmers. In way, it’s more difficult than winter swimming when you expect the cold, inclement weather and can plan and dress accordingly. The unpredictable spring weather often catches swimmers off-guard leading to injury, sickness, or a wasted day of training. Don’t take the sun’s word for it – check your water temps before taking the plunge on the next beautiful spring day.
