Triathlon is definitely a challenging race, consisting of three types of competition: swimming, cycling, and running. The participants compete for the fastest course completion, which also includes timed transitions between each of the races. Therefore, it’s important to know that triathlon is an individual sport. The competitors are on their own, not allowed to get assistance from those who are not participants. Of course, volunteers who distribute food and water are an exception.
The swimming part of the triathlon seems to be the most difficult one for many athletes. This is perfectly understandable, since it requires lots of practice and a great technique as far as breathing and the movements are concerned. So, if you want to participate in this race but you are not feeling confident enough when it comes to swimming, be sure to do everything you can in order to succeed. First of all, asking for help is always a good idea. We at Going Swimmingly London can help you train for this challenging race, as far as the swimming techniques are concerned. Don’t be afraid to ask for a professional’s guidance! Adam is fully qualified and has helped many athletes prepare for this event.
A good swimming teacher is also a good motivator. It is possible that you are talented and know all the techniques, but you lack self-confidence, hence you’re slowing yourself down. If you need motivation, your swimming coach is certainly the person who can help you with it.
Why is it Important to Train for a Triathlon?
Swimming correctly is challenging, even on its own. At a triathlon, however, you will have to be the best in two other additional categories as well. That is why it’s crucial to know how to swim the right way, how to remain energetic and motivated to complete the course with exceptional results. It’s known that triathletes are often using their legs less effectively than other, casual swimmers. The reason for this is to conserv the leg muscle for the running and cycling part.
Now, the question is: how can you succeed if you have to swim very carefully? In the right hands, you can easily master the various techniques that can help you bring out the best of you in the water. For instance, with the help of Going Swimmingly London’s certified swimming coach, you can learn the various swimming strokes to compensate for the turbulent water, and in the same time, to preserve energy. A great piece of advice for triathlon swimmers: you can get some advantage if you are closely following your competitor in order to swim in their slipstream. This sounds like an easy job, but you will need to practice, practice and practice!
