CRUfit Montclair Triathlon Training Guidelines
STEP 1: Consider asking a friend or two to join you as this will likely make it more fun and help with your follow-through.
STEP 2: Do some rowing, cycling and running each week. Stretch after each training session.
STEP 3: Prepare yourself to handle the duration of the event. Here are some guidelines:
Gradually build up to the duration you anticipate. Don’t push too hard when adapting to the duration. Here are some CRUfit class options you can use to prepare for the duration of the event:
Bike or row on your own at CRUfit before or after your favorite class.
Run on the trail above Montclair before or after your favorite class.
STEP 4: Plan the pace you want to go for on each leg you will do. There is not a one size fits all approach here. Some will want to do their fastest pace and some will want to cruise and enjoy the camaraderie and excitement. Play with the pacing you plan on using during some of your longer training sessions. Focus on consistency. Endurance training is most enjoyable if you get into an even rhythm. Make adjustments to your pacing plan based on how your training sessions go.
STEP 5: Plan your event day nutrition and hydration strategy. Play with nutrition and hydration plans during training. Be aware that planning these well can make the event much more enjoyable.
STEP 6: Ask your favorite CRUfit rowing or cycling instructor for input on your training plan.
