How to prepare for varying courses
Hands down, the best way to understand a race course is to work out on it. Go swim in the lake, bike around the course and then run the final leg. Even if you do it on separate days, you’ll have the upper-hand on your competition.

The grand-daddy of them all. When you complete this race, you know you’ve done something, um, well…different. It’s REALLY long! This race takes ALL day and there’s no disguising how it feels to finish this length of race…it takes a lot out of you. Therefore, it’s highly recommended to hire a professional coach to guide you through your first Alpha 140.6 experience. Save yourself many mistakes by getting sage advice from one who has been there, done (felt!) that. The Alpha 140.6 is for the seasoned triathlete.

Alpha 140.6 Training Tip: Watch for Burnout
How to best prevent burnout
Rest is the key to progressing in training/racing. If the appropriate amounts of rest are ignored, the athlete will become apathetic and lethargic. There’s no magic solution to prevent burnout except to follow the warning signs and back-off immediately with a couple OFF or easy days until the athlete seems fresh again. Then, it’s safe to proceed with the training plan.
