It’s vital to safety check all triathlon equipment before races commence so injuries and accidents can be avoided. In fact, there are many steps triathletes can take to avoid things going awry during a race. If your triathlon is to be a success, you need to go into your race without niggles – if you do have a strain, consult your physio prior to the race to ensure you are fit to take part and get the injury looked at so it doesn’t escalate during the big event.
The need to safety check all triathlon equipment
Make sure you have a warm-up routine planned. What’s right for one triathlete isn’t necessarily suitable for everyone, so it really is a case of finding something that meets your own needs and circumstances. Check all the equipment, training and kit you’ll be using beforehand and ensure you are happy with it. Don’t experiment with new equipment if you have old equipment that will do the job. It’s obviously sensible to eat well and avoid picking up bugs in the days leading up to the race – take advantage of probiotics to ensure your stomach and guts are in the best shape they can be. Perhaps the event is taking place overseas? If so, make sure you wear compression socks whilst you travel and drink as much water as you need to. Eat before boarding the plane.
