October 7, 2017 - Week 3 Recap

Dr. Sean Braithwaite of Braithwaite Chiropractic presented a workshop on stretching and injury prevention. Nothing is worse than being down and out due to a training injury. Especially when starting out, it is very important to take care of your body while it adapts to an increase in athletic activity.

Next we headed out for our brick workout, a ride to El Dorado Park for a few loops, then back to Tri-Zone for a couple laps of running.

Have a great week!

See you next time.

-- Erik, Gayla, and the Tri-Zone Staff.

September 30, 2017 - Week 2 Recap

This week our clinic covered nutrition and gear. Erik gave an informative presentation on fueling and hydrating for workouts and races, while Gayla reviewed the necessary and optional equipment used for training and racing triathlons.

Then is was out to Eldorado Park for a few loops, then back for a run along the bike park path.

See you next week!

Hope you had a great time!

-- Erik, Gayla, and the Tri-Zone Staff.

September 23, 2017 - Week 1 Recap

We had a great start to our Fall Give It A Tri program. Gayla and Erik summarized the next 8 weeks of the program, going over the clinics, workout schedule, speakers, and Saturday brick workouts. Following that was a question and answer session to ensure everyone had the information needed to successfully complete the program.

After the talk, the group headed out on their bikes to Eldorado Park and back, then followed up with a run at the Coyote Creek Park along the bike path next to Tri-Zone.

See you next Saturday at Tri-Zone!

Great job everyone!

-- Erik, Gayla, and the Tri-Zone Staff.
