Court House Plus Indoor Triathlon

A week ago today, I competed in the inaugural Court House Plus Indoor Triathlon. Debbie brought home information from the gym about the race a few weeks back, and I decided to give it a go. It was just for training and a little bit of fun.

The format was:

10 minute swim in the gym pool

20 minute ride on an upright stationary bike

30 minute run on a treadmill

The objective was to go as far as you could in the allotted time. 

Each heat had two to four people. My heat had three including me. I was graced with the company of two women who were also trying this for the first time. We had a blast and it was a good workout. I think I covered 12.6 miles total. The odometer on the bike was way off, but who cares. If you have ever swam in the CHP pool, you would know that you better have your flip turns down. It is like 9 yards long. That is a lot of laps in 10 minutes! The stationary bikes aren’t kind to the crown jewels. Of course, running all out on a treadmill for 30 minutes can be horribly mind numbing. My calves are still sore even though I raised the elevation a bit to simulate a real road. I was the only athlete with a cheering section. Deb, Shep, and Tommy-Gun came down to watch. In the end, it was 60 minutes worth of fun.

@trailrunningmom led another successful #Yoga at #Sunset for the #boltonlandtrust This year's venue was the #BoltonHeritageFarm It's been a tradition to move to a new spot each time. I got my first #cyclocross ride of the year in too! #yogini #yogi #shavasana Sightseeing on my second favorite road in #Connecticut #grassyhill #cycling #bicycle #sevencycles #horstengineering Camp was swell! @thecubscouts @boyscoutsofamerica #cubscouts #boyscouts #junenorcrosswebster I visited the new HQ of the @appalachianmountainclub that is under construction at 10 City Square in #Charlestown I had to ride by the #BunkerHill Monument at the end of the #FreedomTrail #Boston #sevencycles First time at the People's Forest Trail Race since 2011. This first image is the look of a dejected man who lost 25 minutes with a wrong turn on a big descent. That's costly in an 11 kilometer race. Even worse is that @trailrunningmom is the one who led him (and two other runners) off course! They survived. It was a nice day on the #FarmingtonRiver. #trailrunning #teamhorstsports #shenipsitstriders 🏃🏻⛰🏆 Another great #sunset at #windingtrails Two distant pre-swim thunderclaps turned the race into a #Duathlon which suited me just fine! It's nice to not come into T1 with a two minute deficit. #Triathlon #mountainbiking #trailrunning #teamhorstsports Once again, @trailrunningmom took the cookie prize for winning the special summit competition at the finish line of the #shenipsitstriders #SoapstoneAssault Here is a picture of a picture of myself taking a picture. @cwoodside59 put together a nice piece for the @ctforestandparkassociation quarterly. I'm looking forward to my next #carfreecommute #selfie #bicycle #windingtrails Kid's #Triathlon
