- Tips for Zafiro Triathlon
Special attention to diet
Around 10-15 days before the event you should pay special attention to food and hydration.
It’s always a good idea to arrive a couple of days before the event to check out the area and weather.
The day before the event, check that everything you need is in perfect condition to help avoid surprises.
Rest between 3 and 5 days before the competition and, of course, sleep well the night before.
Don’t forget a good breakfast
Three hours before the event and dishes with high nutritional value.
Stay calm during transitions
Careful with the sun
Use sunscreen on your body, face and lips.
For long-distance competitions, use Vaseline on areas where there may be friction, such as on your feet to avoid blisters or under your armpits.
Enjoy the competition
After you cross the finish line, hydrate, eat and stretch.
