‘Citius, Altius, Fortius’

Although the swimming pool is heated the weather was only just starting to change for the better and so on Andy’s advice wetsuits were the order of the day This was actually really good as it provided a great opportunity to practice swimming in a wetsuit, and the extra buoyancy a wetsuit provides allowed for a week of swimming really focusing on technique. The important thing when you plan to do an extended block of training is not to get carried away and nuke yourself in the first two days. The day finished off with an awesome Birthday cake and an Idle Breaks cycling jersey as a present from the group. Wednesday 31st March: Frank and Alan had planned a steady day for the girls focusing on transitions. We rode for 3 1/2hrs covered 50 miles and did 6400ft of climbing, a tough but great day in the saddle. Another cracking day came to an end with a brilliant meal and a chat about training, a couple of beers and an early night. The gradients were comfortable but with 3 good days in my legs and no respite the back end of the climb was challenging. At the top I turned round, span down until I reached some of our group coming up then turned and did another 3 miles of climbing, well it’s not every day you get to play on an Alpine type Climb!!! The wind seemed to be plotting against us all week, and so it was on the return ride home. The rest of day was spent in the ice bath, drinking a cheeky beer or two in the jacuzzi and then sleeping and bike packing. My totals for the 5 days; 5 rides, 15hrs, 215 miles, 4 runs, 2 1/2hrs and 4 swims 2 1/2hrs, plenty of stretching and a bit of core work for a total of 20hrs.

About Us

The LA Tri Club was founded in August 2000 after Paul Hekimian presented Larry Turkheimer and Nick Gardner with his vision of an independent triathlon club to benefit the triathlon community in and around Los Angeles. They enlisted the help of a few others, including Holger Beckmann, Ian Murray, Lloyd Taylor, Jerry Enriquez, and Julie Oh, to help launch the early LA Tri Club with the goal of building a strong community of triathletes linked together by a sense of camaraderie. Through this network of like-minded athletes, the exchange of ideas and information about training, gear, etc. Over time, structured training sessions led by professional coaches and group member-led trainings led to both individual and team success. As the sport became even more popular, LATC continued to expand its membership base, affiliations with coaching leaders in the community, and local and national race leaders. This allowed the club to provide greater support to members with quality resources, robust training events, and a stronger race presence. Since the beginning, LATC has sought to help members find balance between their busy lives and families, and a sometimes all-consuming training / racing schedule. Today, LATC continues to promote the enjoyment of the Triathlon Lifestyle to a wider community and supports members of all skill-levels and abilities. We are proud of the value offered in membership and the over 10,000 athletes we have supported over the years. The spirit and life of the LA Tri Club resides in its members and their support for one another, and we give thanks to our members for 18 awesome years.
