Who would have thought that L.A. could be one of the hubs of the endurance world? In the space of one month you can race 2 versions of the Malibu Triathlon, the Los Angeles Triathlon, the Santa Monica 5km, the Playa del Rey Triathlon and a touch further a field, the Long Beach Triathlon and the Carpenteria Tri!!! Throw in the annual La Grange Cycling Club Piuma Hill Climb TT, The Everest Cycling Challenge and 8th wonder cycling event! All here on our doorstep – there’s no excuse not to race and if you plan it right September could be the best time of the year to peak your fitness. Think about this when you plan your 2011 season. Using the law of periodisation, build to season peak #1 from Jan to May. Then rest up in June then go again from July to September for your second peak.
If you are looking for a quick tune-up for a late season race or want to finish your season with a super fast sprint tri, then look no further than the Playa Del Rey Triathlon on October 17th here in LA.
