Avoiding race day disaster!

Avoiding race day disaster!

Avoiding race day disaster!

You’ve done the training, spent a small fortune on fancy kit, shaved all excess body hair and persuaded your family to get up before the milkman ( do we still have milkmen or am I showing my age here?) to come and support you on your big day….. Then it all goes wrong!!
Over the years I have either witnessed or been guilty of all the race day errors possible. A quick trawl of my diminishing memory include:

  • putting the safety pins of my number through both front and back of my T shirt making it impossible to actually put it on in transition
  • turning up to an important race without equipment even once turning up without a front wheel 
  • spending 15 minutes wrestling my wetsuit off in transition
  • swimming an extra 300m over a standard distance race

All of these things are avoidable and to help save you the embarrassment of repeating these mistakes we are holding a one off training day. This will include:

  • practical pool based open water skills session including: navigation, fighting, stroke technique, wetsuit fitting and removal, dealing with open water anxiety and more.
  • practical transition skills: including mount and dismount, tips on setting up a efficient transition area, the rules of transition.
  • race day nutrition and strategy
