Preparing Before Race Day
by Chris Lieto
There are so many variables in the sport of triathlon. Knowing exactly how you’re going to operate on race day will help minimize pitfalls. Weeks before the race, I already know what I’ll be eating the day before and the morning of the race, how I’m going to pack my transition bag and what I’m going to do to recover post-race. In the weeks leading up to the competition, I like to visualize myself before, during, and after the race to set the tone mentally, and to reassure myself that I’m fully prepped for a successful day.
