So I go on the Event Power LI website today to get registration info for my race on Saturday to find out its no longer a triathlon. It’s a duathlon. Apparently one of the light fixtures fell into the pool last week, and now that’s closed for repairs until May 1.
I was really looking forward to starting my triathon experience with a pool swim to get my feet wet (so to speak).
Now it’s a 1 mile run, 6 mile bike, 1 mile run. Bummer. I’m still going. I’ve been working too hard to pass it up now.
There’s another flat race coming up in June. It’s much longer than this starter race, but with 7 weeks still left to train, maybe I’ll sign up for that one. 750-meter swim (open water), 11-mile bike, 3.1 mile run.
Would 6 weeks be enough time to almost double my distances? Training weather is definitely nicer. That would be a plus.
