You might not think so when you look out of the window, but the halcyon days of the training season are almost upon us! In just a few weeks time the cold will disappear, the sun will return and a miserable winter will be a thing of the past (well, that’s what we hope, anyway). And to celebrate the start of the Spring we have an excellent edition of Europe’s favourite triathlon magazine for you (rather than wait for them to arrive in the shops, why not order a subscription by clicking here).
You might as well start as you mean to go on this season, so to kick things off we give you a step by step guide on how to train like a pro. Yes, 14 veterans of the sport offer tips, knowledge and advice on nailing your spring time sessions.
But it’s not just pro training tips that we’re throwing at you this month! We’ve got all of the usual swim, bike and run advice, including a guide to training for the Ironman bike on an indoor trainer (just in case our weather forecast goes awry), and swim exercises that will help to develop a powerful core.
Developing power is one of the most important – and often overlooked – elements of training. Every triathlete should know that being successful at multisport is about more than just swim, bike and run. Yes, you need to add an element of strength training to your training regimen and we’re going to show you how to do just that.
Needless to say, all of this is just for starters. We’ve got more fuel and hydration advice than you can shake an Easter-shape stick at, tips from Chrissie Wellington, gear reviews, interviews and essential pearls of wisdom on how to plan and manage your busy race season.
Yes, it’s all in the March edition of Triathlete Europe. If you can’t wait for it to drop through your letterbox each month why not order a subscription here?
