Training in LA

OK, after a big race weekend (including after race celebrations), its time to head to LA for the next 3 weeks of my training.
Fortunately Paul Amey AKA Amos, who i was staying with in san diego, was also heading up to LA to train with me and macca for the next couple of weeks, so it worked in well to travel up together.
Me and amos was staying with macca & his family where it seems like they where going down like flies with sickness. (must be something going around), Amos got hit with it also, and was out from training for a couple of days, i think i started to get it too, but so far been able to shake it off lucky enough.
Training here is surprisingly good, with a variety of trails to run on, a combination of bike paths and mountains to ride on and a killer swim group with Siri Lindley a mostly all female swim group who are really talented swimmers, who make a 6km sessions entertaining and enjoyable to be apart of. Best of all your in LA; sun, surf and pretty girls what more could you want.
got a hard couple of weeks of training now, then my next hit out will be Saint Anthony's Olympic triathlon where i will get a good speed hit out against the ITU boys, a good tester to sharpen myself up from all the ironman training...
Safe travels Paul
