Number 1: My first triathlon of 2009 is SUNDAY!! It’s an indoor event put on by Lifetime Fitness. I’ve done 3 of their events in the past (all in Chanhassen, MN), but this will be my first at their Eagan facilities. In this event, you swim laps for 10 minutes, take 10 minutes in T1, spin on a spinning bike (with the resistance preset and taped down) for 30 minutes, take 5 minutes in T2, and run on a treadmill for 20 minutes. Then, you get ranked in each event based on everyone else’s distances. Your distances are given points, and all 3 of your events are tallied to determine your overall place versus everyone else.
Here are the results from last year’s indoor tri:
Number 2: I’m doing that triathlon with 5 other friends, and ALL FIVE are triathlon virgins!! I’m REALLY excited about this!!
First, there’s blogger buddy (and real-life buddy) Borsch. He’s done a few duathlons, but this will be his first triathlon. Here’s Borsch and I after we ran a 5K last November (in case you’ve forgotten what Borsch looks like):
Thanks for the photos, Facebook!
It’s gonna be a good week folks!!
