A Simple Guide to Crafting your Perfect Pre-Race Plan

with ALLYSA SEELY, Liv Champion Triathlete

We hear over and over in endurance sport that consistency is key. I am a firm believer in this theory. Consistency in training, in racing, and—most importantly—when the work is done and you have reached the days leading up to a race or event. In the days leading up to your race, it can be hard to stay consistent as your schedule changes. Your training volume drops and you have a slew of different tasks that are out of the norm: prepare for travel, prepare your equipment, help your family and friends prepare to spectate, and more. With all of these changes in schedule, how can you ensure you continue to prepare to be your best on race day? 

This is where a pre-race plan comes into play.

A pre-race plan is a plan created in order to stay consistent in the final days before an event. The most important part of creating a plan is that it is made for you. Check out a few of my tips for crafting your ideal pre-race plan.

There is no perfect pre-race plan as everyone’s will vary. Like with training and racing, after an event take a moment to reflect on your plan. Did it fulfill its purpose? What went well? What could be improved upon?
