Transition Speed Tips

Does anyone train for transition?

I can’t think of anyone who does.  Don’t worry.  I’m not going to go into a tirade about how everyone should  practice their transitions as much as they train for the swim, bike and run.

I just want to be good at something and transition is my thing.  Of the three main disciplines, swimming is usually my highest ranking.  I usually start out each race by getting out of the water in 3rd or 4th place (w/in my age group).  It all goes downhill from there.  I’m working on the bike and run, but it will be a while before I get good enough to keep that ranking throughout a race.  So in the meantime, I pride myself on having a fast transition.

But having a fast transition is not enough for me.

I want to share what I know with others in case someone out there is struggling to shave off a few seconds from their race times.  It’s not like I’m feeding the homeless or giving a lot of money to charity.  But it’s my way of giving back to a great sport that makes me feel like I can live without limits.
