Whether your preparation has been good or not so good, what you do in the final seven days leading up to the race can have a huge impact on your performance on the day.
Simon Ward, our official Outlaw coach has put together these tips:
Many triathletes like to sneak in some extra session in the last few days just to ‘top up their fitness’ or make up for shortcomings in their training plan earlier in the year. This is a waste of time as it takes at least seven days for your system to adapt to the work you’ve done. One extra session will not 'make' your race, but it may 'break' it.
There are lots of other actions that you can take in race week that will be useful on race day, here are my top 10:
Enjoy your final weekend of training, stay relaxed and active and I’ll see you on the start line in Holkham.
