Triathlon with an Indoor Swim!

Well, in the Northwest, that's not really unusual. In fact, there are multiple triathlons just in this week that have indoor swims. However, the YMCA Spring Sprint Triathlon in Boise has another odd twist. In fact, it has to be the strangest thing I've ever seen in a triathlon!

Get this...they swim the 750 yard leg on Friday night...then do the bike and run legs...on Saturday morning!

Just consider that for a second. You could absolutely go all-out on your swim. Just crush it. Then go home and go to bed! Wake up the next morning and be fresh as a daisy for the bike.

If nothing else, this "split-day" triathlon would lead to some super-fast times. Although it seems to almost take the toughness and endurance aspect out of the race completely.

Let's race!

On the photos: I entered in "Crush the Swim" to Google and liked the first shot, but then I saw the photo of Dara Torres (age 44, born exactly a week after me) and thought "Holy Guacamole! I've got to post that! Look at those freaking 44-year-old abs!"
