A week before the race:
Two days before the race
- Sleep well. A good night's sleep — your main goal for this week.
- Cut your toenails. So that it won't to go after the race.
- Stop drinking any alcohol.
- Don't drink coffee and other caffeinated drinks.
It is not necessary to train on that day. Have a rest, think about the race. Better not go for a long walk. Do not waste energy on social networking.
We have talked about the sleep but will repeat it again. This night is more important than the night before the start as most likely you won't have enough sleep just before the race day. You will have a lot of to think about then. Also, don't take photos at the finish line, in the arch, as it is a bad sign.
In the evening before the bedtime think about your the race track and follow it. This is important because it creates a psychological feeling that you've already finished it. The day before the race
Test your wetsuit. Swim part of the distance. Before putting the bike in the transition zone do a short workout but do not overdo it.
Don't eat anything unfamiliar! It's not the time to experiment with food. Avoid fruits and fatty foods. Especially meat. Better ease off on the carbs: pasta, rice, cereal, quinoa. Do not eat potatoes because it has a lot of fiber. Drink when you want to. Do not try to load the body with water.
In the evening before the bedtime visualize the whole distance again.
