Common Injuries

Exhaustion and Dehydration

Swimming mainly uses muscles in the upper half of your body, therefore blood will have rushed to these muscles and there will be a delay for the blood to reach the muscles in the lower half of your body where it is required for the next leg; Cycling.

Transition from Cycling to Running

Is even more exhausting as your legs will already feel tired from Cycling at a fast pace in a circular motion, they then need to get used to working in an up and down motion.

Triathletes train to overcome these fatigue factors using a method called "back to back" training prior to a Triathlon.

Exhaustion and dehydration can seriously impair any competitors in a Triathlon. It is vital that you keep yourself hydrated throughout the event and do not overexert yourself if you begin to feel ill.

However, do not over consume water, as doing so can result in Hypothermia, which can cause vomiting or, in the extreme cases, death. The amount of water you drink should be dictated by your thirst levels.
