3 tips to train better:

- Water: Do not lose continuity and try not to spend many days without losing contact with water. "Think" about the swimming technique while you train, especially during warm-up.

- Cycling: Simulate the circumstances that can occur in competition: uprooted, hard climbs, stoppages, wind .... For the triathlons without drafting, it is very important to work the position in the goat.

- Race on foot: Do not abuse the asphalt and sidewalks and try to run through parks and dirt roads to avoid injuries.

For the three sports I think it is very important to get to know each other without the help of devices such as watt meters, heart rate monitors, etc ... there are people who without them are "lost" and that can not be ...

3 things you should never forget to take the day of the test

- Water: Glasses and Neoprene

- Cycling: A spare tube or tube, you never know if on the way from the car to the pits you can find an unfortunate puncture. Also, a couple of days before you have to check that the bike is in perfect condition. Of course the helmet, the bike shoes ...

- Race on foot: Slippers with laces in perfect condition and a visor / cap for hot days

3 things you should not forget to do during the competition

- Water: Memorize the route and the buoys before jumping into the water. Talk to the most experts and listen to their advice on whether there are currents, etc ...

- Cycling: Drinking and eating since it is the only segment in which we can feed with some ease.

- Running on foot: Maintaining our pace and not obsessing with others, "priming" with someone can end with an undesirable "pájara"

3 tips that always have to be done at the end of the competition

  1. Warm up quickly, although at the moment of finishing it seems that we are hot, the sweat quickly becomes cold and it is easy to catch a cold in those moments.
  1. Collect the pit material as soon as possible to make it easier for the organizer to dismantle the race and to prevent a friend of someone else from doing it for us
  1. Feed and hydrate well, with a good intake of carbohydrates to recover as soon as possible.

Tell us a curious anecdote that happened to you

Ufff !!! I have so many !!!! Jajajaj ...

When in 2010 I did my first triathlon in Tres Cantos with the sole objective of taking points for the Cup of Madrid never (and I say never) before I had put a neoprene and had not swum over 100 or 200m followed and of course I had never gotten to swim in open water. When we threw ourselves I thought it was a joke, it was impossible to be getting so many blows until I was the last and I started to swim more calmly but physically I could not already half the distance I had to grab the pillar of a bridge because I noticed that He choked on having no more strength. I left the water almost 10' of the first (in 750m) and swimming back. In the end I managed to go back a lot and finished 7º, taking the points that I needed for the Cup of Madrid.
