Concept 2 "Triathlon"

Postby dcpattie » June 1st, 2016, 11:51 am

Simple race - 5k rowing erg, 5k skierg, 5k run.

I'm thinking anything under 1-hour would be a good time. Folks that can go sub 18 minutes in all three events would be exceptional.

That would be good times, what with a week between the events ? to do all three one after the other with no rest, thats a time for superman.

Thats a no can do for me no matter how its run. it took me 12 minutes to "Run" 2.4Km and that was after weeks of training. There was not a single person on the test running 2.4Km anything near 9 minutes. From memory the best time was 9:30.

A couple of years ago I saw a crossfit games triple 3 workout that includes a rowing leg. It is a 3K row, 300 double under jump ropes, run three miles. This workout hinges on the jump rope skill / efficiency with that exercise will have the biggest impact on your time. First time I did it, it took me just under 45 minutes. I was fairly practiced with the jump rope. Since then I have gotten the time down close to 40 minutes. Mostly by getting more efficient at jumping rope.
