Swim Bike Run your way to the finish
The start of a swim in triathlon can feel daunting. My coaching will identify and correct the limiters in your stroke. I'll work with you on mentally preparing yourself for the mass start and seeding yourself in the pack.
Whether you’re just starting to swim, you race at the front-of-the-pack, or you are somewhere in between, there’s always room to improve your technique! Whether it sticks depends on how you practice afterward. You’ll receive specific drills and ideas for locking in the changes.
Video Swim Analysis
I'll video and analyze your swim stroke using a Gro Pro camera. I'll provide you with feedback on what changes we need to make to streamline your stroke.
Riding a fast triathlon is not all about going as hard as you can. My coaching will show you ways to ride smarter.
When you race a triathlon you cannot expect to go at 100 percent intensity for the entire thing. Pace judgement is critical if you want to execute the best swim, bike and run possible. However, it’s hard to accurately measure your intensity on the bike without a power meter.
Three common mistakes triathletes make on the bike are pacing, variability, and gearing. Misuse of any of these causes fatigue without any overall benefit. My coaching will show you how to fix these mistakes using power meter and heart rate zones.
My coaching plan will help you build your running mileage, develop a faster cadence, pace better, and most importantly be injury free.
Triathletes often have an endurance mentality, focusing on mileage and numbers of hours spent training, and as a result they prefer to stay away from the gym to prevent building muscle mass.
Although cardio training and working through the mileage is important, it is crucial to mix strength work into your training program to reduce the risk of injury, and improve speed, endurance and efficiency.
Strength training is an important core component of triathlon training as it allows your body to tolerate training loads and build strength to improve your performance capacity.
My plan for you will work strength training in to help with existing injuries and prevent any new ones.
