Give It A Tri Training Program Spring 2019 - LA Tri Series #3 Sprint Triathlon

Tri-Zone's Free Triathlete Training Program for the 2019 LA Tri Series #3 Triathlon

Whether you are already a swimmer, cyclist, runner, or just thinking about it, Our Give-It-A-Tri training program will help prepare you for our local races. For Spring 2019 we will be targeting the LA Tri Series #3 Triathlons at Bonelli Park in San Dimas on Saturday May 11th, 2019. There are two options for distance, the Tri Express with a 300 meter (328 yard) swim, 13.3k (8.25 mile) bike, and 5k (3.1 mile) run, and the Championship distance with a 1.5k (1640 yard) swim, 39k (24.25 mile) bike, and 10k (6.2 mile) run. These races are a great introduction to open water triathlons.

March 23, 2019 - Week 1 Recap

Today was the first session of our newest program. After filling out some paperwork, we started with Gayla explaining the program, including a new Olympic distance option for our returning participants. Following Gayla's presentation, Dr. Sean Braithwaite of Braithwaite gave a talk on the most common running injuries and how to prevent them.

After the talks, we headed to El Dorado Park for some bike work, followed with a few laps of running at Coyote Creek Park.

Next week we will be meeting at 8:00am at Tri-Zone for a Gear and Nutrition Talk with Gayla. After the talk we will be heading to the JFTB pool for wetsuit and swim practice with Coach David Light.

See you next week!

-- Gayla, Raul B., Katie, Skyler, and Briana.
