2. Train the bike in fatigue and in a group

If the bike workouts are always done fresh as a lettuce and at a comfortable pace that nobody requires you to give a little more, on the day of the duathlon your legs will not be used to make this effort after 5Km of running.

Therefore, it is desirable that you ever include prior to bike training, a race training.

Another very important aspect that you should keep in mind is go in a group He is already known for all the great benefits of bike drafting, but to be able to maintain a group It involves prior training.

3. Train the fatigue race

If at the previous point we told you the importance of training the bike with relative previous fatigue in the legs, the last segment of the duathlon that accumulates the fatigue of the first race plus that of the cycling segment It can be done very uphill if your muscles are not trained for it.

The most advisable is perform transition workouts, that is to say, just at the end of the bike training includes a running race training.

To adapt gradually, you can start with 5 minutes of comfortable running and progressively increase in time and intensity.

Keep in mind that in the competition this segment can be decisive to the sprint so you must prepare for it.
