Hey NTPers, a few of us who are signed up for ITU next week were going to do a sprint-length workout starting in Bethesda. It's not an official NTP event or anything, but I, for one, want to have the experience of doing a similar distance under less stressful conditions before gameday, and I couldn't make it to the practice tri.
I posted details in the "Brick" section of the forum, but basically we'd meet at the Bethesda Pool off Little Falls Pkwy, swim in the 50m pool, then bike and run the capitol crescent trail, which is beautiful and quiet and utterly without traffic.
I hope some other NTP people can make it. Drinks in Bethesda afterward. Monday around 6:30p
I am in for Monday's workout! Weekends have been tough for me to make because I have been out of town a lot. I'm NTP and live in Bethesda!
See you at 6:30
I'm planning to be there also.
Can't wait to see/meet people tomorrow. We'll try to start as close to 6:30p as we can. Remember to bring the $7 or so for the pool fee.
However much swimming/biking/running distance people want to do is up to them. The ITU is a 750m swim, so I want to try for that. To the boathouse and back is almost exactly 20k, and there's no good turnaround for 5k, but the Dalecarlia tunnel would make it a 7k run. Alternately, for a shorter run - 2.5k or so, you can run into downtown Bethesda and back. I'm planning on going pretty slow, but I'm sure we'll have a good cross-section of paces.
Call or text me - 917.647.3308 - if you have any questions!
Just a reminder for everyone - our little "mock tri" today will start at the Bethesda Pool, where Little Falls Parkway meets the Capitol Crescent trail, a mile from the center of Bethesda. Try to get there by 6:30pm! All are welcome!
See you all there!
Great work out last night! Noah, thanks again for taking the lead and organizing it. We should definitely schedule more of those.
I agree! Thanks for organizing Noah! Great work everyone :)
Is anyone doing the Lake Anna OWS this Saturday? If so, would you be interested in carpooling?
Do you still have room in your car for the OWS on Saturday?
I think I am driving..the thing is I have a bug and am not sure about a bike rack...usually I throw my bike in trunk...I do have room to drive you, but don't have room for a bike and I think I will stay for the bike ride...what is your cell and I'll be in touch!
I have a station wagon and could probably accommodate 2 bikes along with 2 passengers. Let me know. My cell is 301-318-5161.
That sounds good Kevin! I have a bike rack if we need it! The only thing is I may be in a time crunch to get back for my basketball game after the bike...not sure how long i can hang at the bbq - is that cool? My game is in Dupont at 3:15 so I should be home by 2ish.
I'll call you lata to figure out details!
