So my work has decided to do a “Lazy Triathlon” and I have decided to sign up for it.  A “Lazy Triathlon” is where you complete a triathlon but it is done over the course of a month instead of a single day.  There are two options; the Olympic Triathlon and the Ironman Triathlon.  The Olympic Triathlon is:

  • 0.93 mile swim (1.5 kilometers)
  • 24.8 mile cycling (40 kilometers)
  • 6.2 mile run (10 kilometers)

The Ironman Triathlon consists of:

  • 2.4 mile swim (3.86 kilometers)
  • 112 mile cycling (180.25 kilometers)
  • 26.22 mile run (42.2 kilometers)

Guess which one I chose?

I’ll be working between July 15th and August 15th to complete the Ironman Triathlon so I can call myself the “Laziest Ironman Triathlete!”

Luckily, the row machine at the gym counts as swimming because I am no longer much of a swimmer.  The biking will also be done at the gym but the running will be legit outdoors running.

Wish me luck!

    1. I agree. I am not someone who will probably ever do a triathlon (I did one in junior high school and hated it) but being able to do it this way, at least I can feel I accomplished something 🙂
