3 tips to train better:
- Water: A good technique is essential. Without it, no matter how much you swim, we can become stagnant. Try to find someone who can help us in this regard, even once a week.
-Cycling: Whenever we can in a "grupeta" The training is more fun and the kilometers fall alone.
-Race on foot: To me last season it has worked very well for me to perform athlete training: multi-jumps, short and steep slopes, short series (I rarely did longer series of 800m) In the long shootings I made rhythm changes similar to the 1000 series. 3000m.
3 things you should never forget to take the day of the test
-Water: Comfortable and protected glasses, neoprene (even if it's summer)
-Cycling: Sneakers and helmet.
-Race on foot: Sneakers.
3 things you should not forget to do during the competition
- Water: See the placement of the buoys and know a bit how the currents go if it is a river / beach.
- Cycling: Take a clear reference of where it is placed in the box.
- Race on foot: Go out without fear of the transition but always keeping a little point so as not to explode. We get off the bike activated, if we have training we can hold the strong pace from the beginning.
3 tips that always have to be done at the end of the competition
- Put on something warm, remove sweaty clothes and if I can with wet wipes I clean sweat.
-Hidratarse and eat something.
-Enjoy the atmosphere at the end of the test ... (We will stretch the next day, the muscle is very sensitive to perform some very demanding stretches at the end of the competition)
-Retrieve me from my Achilles Tendon injury and then enjoy the races in which I participate.
