Decoding the Triathlon Lexicon

Triathlon is a demanding and exhilarating multi-sport event that combines swimming, cycling, and running. Whether you’re a seasoned triathlete or just dipping your toes into this challenging world, understanding the specialized vocabulary of triathlon is essential for successful training and competition.


Why Use a Pace Team

Sponsored by Fleet Feet Hartford, the Hartford Marathon Foundation’s Pace Teams are a free resource for participants. Experienced pace leaders run a steady pace and keep track of that pace during the race so that the group can achieve their goal of finishing in a certain time.

Picking your pace team depends on what your finish line goal time is. Choose a pace group that reflects your training and ability level based on finish times during training, and allows you to run at a comfortable rate throughout the race.

If you can’t decide between two paces, it is recommended that you start with the slower pace, as you can always pick it up later in the race.

How To Pace Your Race

If you are just starting to run, you might find it difficult to control your pace and find the “sweet spot” where your pace feels comfortable. Even as a seasoned runner, you may still start out too fast in races or workouts only to crash and burn before the finish line. Learning to pace yourself properly is a cornerstone of distance running, but it takes practice. Lots and lots of practice.
