For some people the transition is a time to rest and make yourself comfortable so the next sport will be as easy.
Have you ever looked through the result after a race you completed and wondered how the times of people’s transition times are 10 seconds, 20 seconds, 40 seconds and then looked at your own and it reads ’3 minutes’?
Have you entered the London Duathlon or any other multisport event and you want to experience running off the bike, and what the commonly known ‘jelly legs’ feels like without having to find out the hard way on race day?
Or are you one of those people at the top of the results sheets and you are looking to shave off a handful of seconds because it could mean the difference between 11th and a top 10 position, if only you could master having your bike shoes already on the bike in T1?
Whatever your reason for wanting to know more about transition training, we are able to offer you as much or as little advice as you require to make your duathlon or triathlon experience a little easier, faster and enjoyable.
So what is the ‘transition’?
Transitions are the period of time between each of the three disciplines where you change the necessary equipment to get on with the next section of the event. For some people the transition is a time to rest and make yourself comfortable so the next sport will be as easy as possible, for others it is ‘the 4th discipline’ and it’s all about how quickly you can get in and out saving as much time overall as possible.
