In-door tri-athlon

My gym is running an in-door tri-athlon (in case you're wondering, yes I did mention this in another thread) which breaks down like this:

Row 1500m level 5
Run 2000m flat
Cycle 6km level 3 out of 12

There's a mandatory 30 sec pause between each event to account for equipment lay-out.

Has anyone ever done one of these as I'm thinking of entering and would like some idea of what a reasonable time would be. A date hasn't been confirmed yet but I'm told it will be the first or second weekend in April.

    Never done one , but sounds quite interesting - I'm by no means what I'd call fit yet, but might give it a go during training next week ;-)

    We did one at our gym last September for charity. We did swimming instead of rowing though as we have a pool. It took most of the day.

    i would say 25-35mins depending on your endurance level this would be termed a "sprint" triathlon. that is also an unusual arrangement of events, normally goes swimm[or in this case row], cycle, run. the ones i've done do anyway.

    When I say it took most of the day I didn't mean it took most of the day to complete the 3 events. I meant we had loads of teams and we only have 10 treadmills, 10 bikes and a 25 metre pool so we did it in relays.

    Had a blast at this today, done in order of Rower, Bike & Run - moving straight from one station to the next.
    Time = 35mins 10 secs & I think with a bit of specific training I could take a big chunk out of the run stage, didn't think it was too bad for someone who weighs 14 stone.
    Actually quite enjoyed it & might include it in my training as a once per week session!

    Took me about 29 mins including a breif pause (approx 1 min) between each event. I don't think I'll get my rowing and cycling tiems down by much (maybe 30 secs each) but my running is terrible (9:40 for 2km, can probably get 1 minute off that) so I think thers reasonable room for improvment. Probably get it down to 27 mins, but I suppose it's not until april so I could aim for less if I'm being optimistic, especially if I cut the rest periods down to the mandatory 30 secs.

    well done pal, thats a good start. try to nail 8m30 for the 2k and get your rowing time down. use the cycle as a rest.
