TRI IT INSIDE!

I recently received a pleasant e-mail: Lifetime Fitness is going to be hosting their second Indoor Triathlon. I’m already signed up. And if you know someone who is interested in doing triathlons, but is a little intimidated, have them sign up for this one. Maybe it’s you!

On February 25th, there is going to be an indoor triathlon at the Lifetime Fitness in Chanhassen, MN. Last year was the first one, and they are hosting it again this year. Last year, the indoor LTF triathlon was my first ever triathlon, and it was a blast. Everything is time based, not distance based. You lap swim for 10 minutes, then transition for 10 minutes, then bike on a spinning cycle for 30 minutes, then transition for 5 minutes, and finally run on a treadmill for 20 minutes. The distances you cover in all 3 events are measured against everyone else who competed, they’re given a numerical value, and then your place is figured. I am a slow, slow swimmer, so I was around 75th out of 100 in the swim, but then I was 6th in the bike, and somewhere in the top third of the run. I ended up 25th out of 100 in the end:



It was SUPER FUN and SUPER LOW KEY. If you’re new to the sport, this is a great opportunity to give it a shot. If you come, find me and say hi!

There are also similar indoor triathlons being held around the US, with 3 in Texas, 2 in Illinois and Minnesota, and 1 in Virginia, Arizona, and Michigan. Here is the official link with more info on the event, as well as how to register:

Do it. Don’t wait. See you in Chanhassen.
