PREPARATIONS FOR A COMPETITION

  • What exactly do you need to do in order to warm up? Do you have necessary equipment with you? 
  • Is your bicycle in working order? You should take a pump and inner tubes with you. 
  • Check that your speedometer, pulsometer and belt are with you and that they are in working condition. 
  • Do you have your sport drink powder, clean water and bottles? To avoid thirst after competition, it’s always a good idea to have some extra water with you.

FOR A COMPETITION YOU NEED

  • Outfit (swimsuit or wetsuit, clothes for cycling and running)
  • Safety pins or anything else to attach your number
  • Swimming cap and goggles
  • Wetsuit, oil, towel for cleaning your feet and a shoe horn (if you use one)
  • For a longer distance you also need food (gels/bars)
  • Bicycle, helmet, glasses, shoes (and straps or something to adjust your shoes)
  • Running shoes and a hat

IMMEDIATELY AFTER A RACE YOU NEED

  • Couple of towels to dry yourself after the relaxing swim
  • Clothes for changing to keep you dry and warm (even when it’s warm outside)
  • Food, as the next 30 minutes after a competition are the most important to replenish yourself. Make sure to have some bananas/bars/sandwitches with you.

It’s better to practice with a bad weather and you’ll also have a better feeling afterwards.

Something I read once and also practiced. When you get out of water, open your calipso, grab your swimming cap and goggles. Now, when you pull your hand through the sleeve, just leave your headgear in the sleeve. They won’t fall out because of the material. You will save time and won’t lose your equipment. 

And another thing. Practice!

Warm up before practicing and stretch afterwards, try to avoid injuries.
Toomas Lelov

During swimming (especially with many participants) it is advisable to pick a bit of a longer route and try not to swim directly towards the buoys which mark the way. Usually there are standstills, where it’s easy to lose your rhythm and you might easily get hit by other people. So avoid this by taking a bit of a longer route. You will save energy and win time by doing so. Alternative option is just to be the fastest swimmer.

Swimming goggles with a soft seal are the best for a triathlon distance. Don’t set the rubber straps too tight because you might get a reverse effect.

Instead of usual laces, you can use elastic laces on your running shoes. It makes changing shoes easier and faster.

The water is usually cold in Estonia. Be prepared and practice for that!

Avoid eating too much, especially fatty food, in the morning before the competition. You can reward yourself with better meals afterwards.
