Most of my triathlon warmup strategy in the past has involved "trusting my training." This meant spending my pre-race time talking to the merry band of fellows wearing Speedos, ensuring that my transition area was in proper order, and plotting the post-race festivities.
As we are training into race-ready form, a number of us on the Kyle’s Bikes Triathlon Team were discussing ways for us to better our performance and minimize the risks for personal injury. Within this conversation was a strong focus and surprising debate about the usefulness of and strategy behind the "warmup" time before the starting gun goes off.
