End of the OFF Season

October/November has been the off season for most athletes.

Triathletes need a break after a long hard season to re-charge, refocus and get ready for next season. Before you start thrashing your body check out our tips from the Race Team.

1. Chill Out, Relax for the first few weeks, allow your body to recover physically and mentally. Towards the end of October Start with some active recovery (not swim, bike, run). Exercise classes, Gym sessions, Boot Camps, Kayaking and Racquet Sports such as badminton and squash.

2. Evaluate 2012, take some time on your own or with your coach to review how your main events went, how your training went etc. Look at and discuss your strengths and weaknesses to work out what areas you can improve on for the coming season.
