Planning & Preparation Are Key for Every Triathlete | Trifuel

Planning & Preparation Are Key for Every Triathlete | Trifuel
What a great article, most triathletes are Type A and don't think they need help with this, well think again. TriFuel has a great article on this.
Proper planning and preparation are key elements to triathlon training and racing. An athlete’s time management and organizational skills play a huge role in their success or failure on race day. A day has only 24 hours and as a triathlete you must learn to get the most out of each and every one of them.
One of the most common complaints that we hear from athletes is that they didn't have the time to get their workouts in. A lack of time does happen - but more likely than not the athlete failed in their preparation and planning of their workout.
This failure could be that they didn't bring their training gear when they left for work in the morning, or that they feel it is necessary to drive 60 minutes out of their way to do a bike ride.
Sometimes life gets in the way and that is fine. We can't plan for the unexpected but we can plan for what we know awaits us each day.
