Triathlon Running #ProTips

Three Important training tips to improve your triathlon run:

1. Increase your running gradually. Remember that it takes time to build strength in muscles around the foot. 

2. Cushioning your feet is important, so wear the right footwear. 

3. Think of your distance. If you’re doing a long event, bear in mind that after a couple of hours the training benefit tappers off and the chance of injury increases, so plan your sessions wisely.
