Webinar: Preparing for Race Day: The Missing Handbook
Topic: Preparing for Race Day: The Missing Handbook
Triathletes spend months training for race day, but typically step onto the starting line without the practical and mental preparation needed to perform at their best. Dr. Michelle Cleere will share her handbook of tips, tricks and essential tactics that she has developed over years of triathlon competition and coaching.
Drawing upon the latest Sports Psychology research, this presentation will give coaches and triathletes a preparation plan that outlines what to do five weeks out, one week out, the night before and the day of the race.
She will cover how to manage pre-race jitters, how to prepare for worst case scenarios (flat tire, crash, dehydration, etc.), what to absolutely avoid before a race, how to arrive at the race ready to go and what to think about during the lead up.
