Clinic: Mastering the Triathlon Transition
Practice makes perfect!
There?s really nothing like a triathlon transition.
Crazy, harried, frenetic ? it is a place that inspires
frustration in some and raw fear in others. One
writer correctly called it ?triathlon?s version of
a ?Chinese fire drill.??
The challenging thing about transitioning in triathlon
that you want to be quick and efficient, but you
don?t want to forget anything. Rush and
forget your helmet, and you'll likely be disqualified.
without your energy gels, and you could easily bonk.
delicate balance that takes practice ? and a game
The best thing you can do when it comes to
transitions is to keep things simple. Limit the number
of tasks you hope to accomplish in the transition
(wearing your tri clothes in the swim ? and keeping
that outfit for the rest of the race ? is an excellent
way to achieve this). Set up your area so that it
makes sense. Bike gear up front, run gear in the back.
Mutli-tasking is another great tool. Try to keep
yourself moving forward at all times. If that means
putting your bike shoes on while on the bike, great.
If it means putting your running hat on while on the
run course, perfect. Whatever you can do on the fly,
learn to do it.
After that, it?s all about practice. Sure, practicing
your transitions may not be the first thing you want
to do on a Saturday, but that?s why Anne and Bill
Wilson of Camelback Coaching have set up a
Transition Clinic for you.
The event takes place from 8 to 10 a.m. Saturday,
Sept. 9, at Melrose Pool, 11424 N. 30th St., in
Phoenix. Bring your race outfit, cap and goggles,
wetsuit, bike and bike gear, running gear, race belt
and transition towel.
The clinic will cover how to properly rack your bike,
transition-area etiquette, wetsuit ?donning and
doffing,? speedy flow at T1 and bike mount and
dismount strategies. Cost is $10 for Camelback
Coaching athletes, $20 for all others. Please RSVP to
email@example.com or (480) 998-3028.
