Commit to ‘Tri': Indoor Triathlon Hour

So as 2015 is the year for me to try ‘Tri’ – I thought that I’d jump the gun a bit before the first races begin in late February.

I was scouting around online, looking for some more training activities and found an ‘indoor’ triathlon kicking off next week.

Apparently Life Time health clubs partnered with the Ironman organization to get more folks to consider racing triathlons in 2015. What they have created is an Indoor Triathlon Hour that occurs in a local Life Time club.

The total event will be 75 minutes: 10 minutes in the pool, a 10-minute transition, 30 minutes on a spin bike, a 5-minute transition and 20 minutes on a treadmill. Transition times are fixed between events and do not count toward participants’ scores.

As luck might have it, there is a local Life Time club in Raleigh that will be running the race.

I wonder how many other folks will be wearing swim trunks instead of Speedos?

Game on.
