what is a triathlon

“In simple terms, a triathlon is a multisport activity comprising of three aerobic disciplines performed consecutively as one continuous event. While countless variations of triathlons exist, the most common form involves swimming, cycling, and running. – “”

Here’s Sparticus played by Kirk Douglas who actually lived past 100 due to his lifestyle and “grit!”

Yet, for this 67-year-old writer…my “modified triathlon,” as a Senior Citizen in Israel, has three easy steps; a relaxed Walk, a slow Swim plus a fun Bike. Each at any speed or duration.

1) By just walking with my hiking poles up and down the “Tiyellet” (or boardwalk in Hebrew) in either direction. This qualifies as my “run!” 

2) When riding my rusty ole “girls” bike – this opens my legs and eyes to the wonder of Nahariya’s sea and sand vistas.

3) Late in the day, I begin the even slower process of  incrementally swimming my 36 laps. 

This 3-step goal is to start every night after dinner with a slow, breathing and digesting walk by the sea with other friends in town. The early bike the next morning gets my juices flowing, and the after nap-time swim gets me deep breathing and wanting to jump in the sea and sit on the sand with my water, fruits, and book! Yes I’m a lazy ole dude!

Won’t you join me and give our Longevity concept a try? It’s to breathe, relax and enjoy life with our friends in Nahariya. Of course, diet is important – if any of you are interested I’d like to join forces and develop a Vegan nutrition program we can all teach each other – recipes, and potluck cookouts rotating around town! All ideas are welcome!!

*According to, “Moses was 120 years old when he died, yet his eyes were not weak nor his strength gone. And how was Moses able to live to 120 yet still have his strength and vitality?”  see link here.

So look for me as the “slow-motion” Altacocker King Triathalon 67-year-old Mati Katz who from February 2022 through November (our nice weather season in Nahariyya!) you will see me and others who join the call.

Two other activities will be apart of all Senior Triathlon members. We will all end our morning bike at Landwer’s for a community coffee clatch! This gives us a chance to tell jokes and other bubermisers – at about 9am-ish. The other potential activity is the nighttime stroll can end also in a game of “non-competitive” chess also at Landwer’s around 7:00pm Sunday/Wednesday only.








Join the Fun, don’t pass go, just show up! Register otherwise to get announcements on our Group Chess and Exercise Whatsapp – 058-367-4900 – you may remove yourself anytime!
