KY and EH were snapping photos all day, and they got 2 of me at the Life Time Fitness Minneapolis Triathlon last weekend. Here's one of me hitting the edge of transition after the swim:
Not super happy with my swim time, but ready to ride!
(2:28 actual time)
1. You can select one of the many "Race to the Toyota Cup" races (LTF Tri was one of them) and plan your nutrition. It will tell you when to have what products based on your body composition and what you LIKE to consume during a race. (This would work if you're doing ANY Oly distance as well.)
2. If you've done one of the "Race to the Toyota Cup" races (so far just Philly and LTF Mpls), you can virtually watch yourself against the rest of the field. It's actually kind of cool. Until you realize where the leaders are on the bike when you're exiting the water. Maybe that's just me... :) But really, it's fun to watch my race at about 50x the regular speed. Here's a screen shot from when my red dot just finished the swim, and it shows blue dot A (Hunter Kemper) and blue dot B (Sarah Haskins) are nearly to the Franklin Bridge:
This one is actually kind helpful. My run pulled me from 220th in T2 up to 78th by the finish!
And that I'm the 2nd of 5 Steves?
And that I beat everyone named Adam?
Thanks. That's real helpful. (And a little funny.)
If you raced LTF (or want to try the nutrition planner), check it out here. And here's my race report if you missed it.
