Triathlon is one sport.
You don’t come into it thinking, I’m going to do a bit of training for running.
I’m going to do a bit of training for cycling.
I’m going to do a bit of training for swimming.
So that when you get into a race, you think, oh, it’s all going to come together.
No, it doesn’t.
Triathlon is one sport and should be treated as such.
People ask, will my swim affect my cycle and my run?
Swimming is a completely different fitness to run or cycle fitness.
You’ve actually got to get in the pool and swim or get in open water and swim at least three times a week.
And you need to become arm dominant.
What do we use most in the rest of the triathlon in cycling and in running?
We use our legs.
If we’ve been swimming and like paddling like a flipping duck, with your legs, you are going to be absolutely shattered when you get out of the pool or out of the open water.
It’s bound to affect your bike and your run.
That’s why we teach Total Body Force Swimming.
You need to come on one of our swim courses, which again is starting again on the 14th of September, and we will be able to help you get in the best place possible when you get out of the water to be able to complete your triathlon in a brilliant state.
Rather than being absolutely shattered by the time you get on your bike.
