This past Sunday morning, I competed in my first "real" indoor triathlon. When I say "real" I just mean it was actually an organized event you pay for, as opposed to something made-up I drag my friends into. :) It was a great way for me to get my feet wet! It was held at the gym I work out in, and this was the first time for them to host an indoor triathlon. And, it was much easier than a regular sprint tri because you swim, bike, run for a certain amount of time, and the person who goes the farthest altogether wins. So my friend Stacie from church and I competed with 13 other folks, swimming for 10 min, biking for 20, then running for 15. Sounds short and easy right? Yeah, we thought so too. It was really fun having everyone there watching and cheering, but it wasn't as easy as I'd pictured in my mind. Believe it or not swimming was the best part, I was first in my heat after the swim, but then came the bike!! We biked on stationary bikes that were set pretty high in their resistance and that about did us in! Then we finished with 15 minutes on the treadmill.Overall, I covered about 5 1/2 miles. Not bad for a Sunday morning workout. :) Anyway, I think I'm liking this triathlon thing. I like that I don't get bored with it and I like having something to work for. If any of you are convinced, the Natatorium is holding another better and improved indoor tri this spring. I'd love for you to do it with me!!
