The rest period of the triathlete, how to do it?

We are at a time of the year where we all think about the future and, therefore, throughout a series of articles that we will share these weeks we will teach you to go through the different periods from the end of a season and until the next one begins.

 

 

From the section of Training Triathlon News as you all know, we try to help the Triathlete and with it show everything that will make you better Triathlete.

We are at a time of the year where we all think about the future and, therefore, throughout a series of articles that we will share these weeks we will teach you to go through the different periods from the end of a season and until the next one begins.

Does it sound? Do you know what to do? What is the most and least correct?

We will break down the periods of "Rest", "Pre-season" and "Start" where we hope you can learn many unknown things and remember others that we must not forget in order to be better year after year.

Resting or still competing? What is your position today?

Already in November, where the most for the one who has least finished their competitions (at least triathlically speaking), it is time to get down to work planning next year. We all know that this is a time of reflections, perhaps we still do not have clear what we will do next season but there is something that we ALL want ....

DO NOT LOSE THE PHYSICAL FORM WE HAVE

Here there is no doubt, we all want to be blue. Modified by Jonathan Esteve.

Maybe it is not the best but first of all the main objective should be not to take a step back to start the season as best as possible, so we planted before 2 options:

                1-. We have rested already, reason why we do not have back turn and it is necessary to begin as soon as possible to get down to work with the 2017 after this "stop". Your goal should be to start prepare your preseason as we will see in the next article.

                2-. We decided that after having competed these weeks ago in the last tests of the year, NOW is the time to stop. For this second group the following tips go:

Take advantage of a few days off to disconnect of the sport if your head asks for it, especially for those who have had an 2016 full of competitions and who are capable of giving the maximum in each of the training, those who compete is their passion and play sports just for this.

If sport is your way of life, you do it by simple leisure y fun, maybe it is not so important and if neither the body nor the head asks you, you do not have to hang the bike and the shoes, simply lowering the pace of training and resting more days per week will be more than enough.

Try to maintain a quality training (my advice is to do it in the weakest discipline) every 7-10 days, since we will allow a maintenance of our VO2 Max which will take us to start the season with "a greater engine" than if we stop altogether.

Make a visit to your physiotherapist Trust, explain that recurring injury that you have had throughout the season and that for one issue or another has not finished improving and has always been nagging ... There is no better time for it than now.

Train other sports or do other activities that you like but once you get into work you do not have time to do, ENJOY!

Analyze your season. Sync with yourself and write down everything that was done right or wrong because this is the only way to improve the results. For this I recommend this article that I wrote almost a year ago: LINK "WE ARE IN JANUARY AND NOT YET ...", I DO NOT FIND IT

Once we have completed our PERIOD OF BREAK BETWEEN SEASONS, advisable between 1-3 weeks In order to minimize the losses of our aerobic capacity, it is time to get down to work and prepare a PRE-SECURE period.

This will be the goal of the next article where we will be fully involved in the work of the 3 disciplines, not with the intensity of a competitive mesocycle or load but with other objectives that we will see ....
