Please join us for our usual Sunday training:
We'll swim about 0.25 miles in the ocean, bike 9 miles through the park, then run 1.7 to 4.5 miles (more details below).
Everyone goes at their own pace and can tailor the course according to their abilities. Between each leg we gather in the parking lot again and wait for everyone to finish before we go on to the next discipline.
If you don't know where John U Lloyd Park is please have a look at the map. You can click on the location above to get to one.
After you enter John U Lloyd park drive all the way to the end until you get to the last parking lot (about 2.5 miles). We'll meet at the last pavilion (called Jetty Pavilion). Park entrance fee is $4. They accept only cash.
If you have questions on clothing or equipment please check this post on the message board: http://www.meetup.com...
The swim is parallel to the beach for 200 m then back. You can turn around earlier or walk back if you can't do the full 400 m swim. The water is very flat here. If you're not a good swimmer please keep closer to the beach so that you can stand up if needed. There are no lifeguards on duty. Although we watch out for each other you're ultimately responsible for yourself and swim at your own risk. If water conditions don't allow us to swim (too cold, riptides etc.) then we substitute the swim with a 1.5 mile warm-up run.
The bike ride is 2 loops of 4.5 miles each on the road that runs through the park (normal pavement). Do just one loop if you want to.
For the run we have 4 alternative routes: a beach run of 1.7 miles (on the sand), a street run of 3 miles, a street run of 4.5 miles, or a trail run of 4.4 miles. We'll discuss who wants to do which run and then split up into groups if needed.
After the training those who still have time sometimes go for a bite to eat at the Loggerhead Cafe in the park.
