It's (indoor) triathlon time!
With the weather outside reaching truly arctic levels of cold and wind chill this week, even the hardiest of athletes would probably prefer not to venture outdoors for their morning workouts.
Sounds like the perfect time for a triathlon, right? Well, at least of the indoor variety.
At the Detroit Lakes Community & Cultural Center, fueling your competitive spirit doesn't have to involve freezing temperatures, thermal underwear or strapping on a pair of skis or snowshoes. The sixth annual DLCCC Indoor Triathlon is set to take place Saturday, Feb. 2, in the Center's Fitness & Aquatics Center — a little later on the calendar than usual.
"We decided to move the date back a little bit this year, to give people more recovery time after the hustle and bustle of the holiday season," says LaCarra Larson, the Center's membership director, who is taking on the triathlon coordinator's duties for the first time after coming to work at the Center this past summer.
Aside from the later date, however, most of the details for the event remain the same: The first "wave" of competitors will hit the DLCCC pool starting at 8 a.m., with other waves starting out on the treadmill or the stationary bicycle. Each competitor is asked to complete a 10-minute swim in the pool, a 30-minute bike ride in the cycle studio, and a 20-minute run on the treadmill.
