3 Steps to Triathlon Season Planning
Triathlon Season Planning Made Easy
Success in triathlon and life in general, typically starts by setting goals, creating a plan and then executing that plan. We refer to this process as season planning and done correctly, it will help set you up for success.
The fall and early winter are a great time of year to start planning for next season. Races are beginning to open up and many popular races sell out FAST.
Below I will outline a simple, but effective, approach to set yourself up for a super successful year.
IRONMAN with One Hand
Can you imagine swimming 2.4 miles and riding 112 miles with 1 hand? Me neither! However, despite having only 1 hand, Jim Williamson knew he could do it.
So, with the support of his family and a little guidance from his coaches, Jim set out to prove, “anything is possible!”
Have Direction & Purpose
Have DIRECTION & PURPOSE for your goals
Many events are too hard, long, and difficult to race or participate in on a whim. When the going gets tough – and it will – it is purpose that will help drive you forward.
We always encourage our athletes determine what their purpose is BEFORE getting started on their journey. Some common (yet general) examples include:
Why RACE 26.2 miles virtually
Drew’s Motivation Behind His Virtual Boston Marathon
First and foremost, we’d like to give a HUGE SHOUT OUT to RTA coached athlete Drew C! He CRUSHED the 2020 Virtual Boston Marathon last month by running a 🔥3:05🔥 with a negative split of 1:30 on the back half. 😯 OUTSTANDING, especially considering all of the circumstances.
This was all done on his lightest run volume ever and in a very limited time frame leading up the the race.
