So I decided to do a little mini triathalon work out on Saturday night. I started with a 2 mile run on the treadmill. It was a 7 min Run/3 min walk with a 5 min warm up. That portion took about 25 minutes. Than I jumped on the bike for a 5 mile ride in about 20 minutes.
The swim was next……
I had to figure out how long a mile was in the pool at my apartment. I was told it was 110 feet long. So I googled how many feet in a mile.
1 mile = 5280 feet
So that means 24 laps, now I know I will not be able to keep track of that many laps so I needed to make a homemade abacus. I went to the dollar store and picked up a bag of plastic beads and used 2 plastics cups. Each lap I moved one bead from the left to the right. BRILLIANT!
