Week 6 Recap

This past Saturday our clinic focused on swimming technique and drills. We saw some great examples of proper swim technique that could be applied to our own swim training. After the clinic, we got on our bikes and headed to El Dorado Park for a few laps, followed by a nice 2 mile walk/jog/run. Only one session left, it's getting close! Next Saturday is a transition clinic followed by some hands-on practice.

Week 5 Recap

This past Saturday the team went over bike related maintenance, road handling skills, race handling skills and racing strategies. It was a great learning session with the team! After a 45 minute chat, we got on our bikes and put some of those things we learned to use, followed by a nice 2 mile walk/jog/run. Only two sessions left! This Saturday we will be doing another swim clinic, and the following Saturday we will be doing our transition clinic. Don't miss out!

Week 4 Recap

What a great weekend we had at Tri-Zone with the Give-It-A-Tri program! We had a great presentation with Dr. Sean Braithwaite. His coverage on all type of stretching and core exercises are great for everyday proper health (especially while working out). After his presentation, we all went for a beautiful "winter" sunny day and a run. We did some really good speed work and drills on our bikes before ending with a nice run. Next weekend we will go over more biking details and skills. Don't miss out on this great free program!

Week 3 Recap

We started with an informative clinic from physical therapist Jimmy Honda. Jimmy showed us several stretches and exercises to help strengthen core muscles and improve our running form. After the clinic, we headed to the running path for a quick mile, followed by a bike around El Dorado park, and finished up with a two mile run. It was a beautiful if slightly chilly morning and we hope everyone had a great time.

Week 2 Recap

Our second Saturday was full of information. We started the day watching swim videos to go over proper ways to swim which also involved a lot of interaction from the athletes. Once done with the swim talk, we all got on our bikes and rode to El Dorado Park. We focused on drills while riding in the park, mainly on proper pedaling. Once back from the park, we all went on a nice 2 mile walk/jog/run. Everyone had an awesome time and worked very hard. We can't wait to keep developing such great group of people!

Week 1 Recap

Our third Give-It-A-Tri for Race on the Base started this past Saturday! Huge group of future triathletes showed up and we went over basic nutritional information, did an overview of the whole 7 week program, and spoke about proper bike cadence and gearing. We also went over proper gear to have when swimming in a pool. This upcoming weekend I will be going over swim techniques before we go on a team ride and team run. Join us!
