The days preceding a first triathlon can be nerve-wracking for first time triathletes. It’s important to be familiar with the race course on race day, but don’t squeeze in some last-minute training based on new information you learn about the race the day before the event.

The majority of triathletes require more time, so your longest run should be three to four weeks before race day. In the study, 25 athletes trained for an hour five days a week for six weeks at a high-intensity level of 75 to 85 percent (Mora 1993). Thus triathletes training for longer distances might do better with more tapering; older triathletes might also need more tapering.

The pattern of inquiry (POI), reflects John Dewey’s ideas on how people use an experience to gain knowledge about a topic or concept.
