- Make sure you get a period of rest between each race to optimise your performance
Between short format races, you will soon be able to resume your training pace and move on to the next race.However you will need to rest properly between longer formats. If you are preparing an L-distance triathlon, you can do a M-distance triathlon a few weeks before your race. If you want to do two L formats in a row, you should leave at least a 2-month period between the two triathlons.
For an XXL format, you can do an L-distance up to 6 weeks beforehand. If you are doing two XXL triathlons in a row, make sure you do a maximum of two over the course of the year. Once again, everyone is different and has a different capacity in terms of sequences. Don't forget that it's important to manage your efforts throughout the season.
To optimise your performances, you have to work on each cycle, with general preparation cycles, more specific cycles, fine-tuning and rest stages between each objective.It is impossible to have high-performance all year round so you have to manage your fitness peaks.
