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.

Could currently do both the 5k row and ski in under 18 minutes with probably only limited rest (less than 1 minute) but would be 21:00 to 21:30 ish on the 5k run. Would be close to an hour with transitions. Definitely quicker than 62 minutes!

A Sprint version could be 2k x 3.

2k row
2k ski
2k run

Sub 21 minutes would be the gold standard.

I'm imagining them done with zero rest - like a triathlon. Another possibility would be doing them "decathlon" style on different days.

Yet another option could be holding the running event so it's a "pursuit" like the Nordic combine where your start time (for the running event) is determined from your combined row/ski time. First person to cross the finish line (during the run) wins!

Row on Friday
Ski on Saturday
Run on Sunday

Ok, I finally did this. Zero rest. I'm lucky to own both so doing them at my home is convenient. My first attempt was a test, I'll do another "full out" test in two weeks.

5k rowing erg
18:58

5k skierg
19:54

5k run
20:40

T1
18 sec

T2
8 sec

I started my Garmin for the run right off the skierg.

59:59

I was surprised how marshmallowy my legs felt at the start of the 5k run, you really do use your quads on the skierg!

So why even bother with the 5k run? This serves as an important "body weight" adjustment in a more simple way than using a calculation.

My goal for my next attempt is 57:59 or faster.

I think we will need to rethink this since C2 just came out with the new BikeErg. I'd love to see them update the iPhone App so there is a row/ski/bike option that records performance seamlessly without needing to spend time reconnecting to each device.

I still think incorporating a run leg is important as it serves as an equalizer for lightweight athletes.
