2014 Southside Swim Time Trial #4 – 800m (7/28/14)

2014-07-29T20:38:10+00:00

Last evening, several folks put the finishing touches on their River Cities Triathlon training with an 800m time trial swim. Most lanes contained three swimmers (starting 5 seconds apart), so athletes were able to experience crowding and drafting a little bit. Special thanks to Edward Cooper for helping with the stopwatch. Here's how it shook [...]

2014 Southside Swim Time Trial #3 – 800m (7/14/14)

2014-07-15T17:01:16+00:00

We increased the distance to 800m this week to help prepare folks for the River Cities Triathlon swim in less than three weeks.  The water was incredibly warm and undoubtedly taxed performances (sounds a lot like Cypress Lake on race day). The following individuals tested themselves versus the clock: Jeff Howells 12:29 Greg Simmons 12:32 [...]

2014-07-08T19:58:52+00:00

The Southside pool is warming up...and so is the competition.  Eight individuals tested themselves against the clock in near 90º waters yesterday evening: 1. Whit Somerall 5:45 2. Jeff Howells 5:53 3. Greg Simmons 6:01 4. BE Smith 7:12 5. Chris Elberson 7:50 5. Kelley Crow 7:50 7. Chris Cosse 8:46 8.  Laura Mayeux 9:17 [...]

2014 Southside Swim Time Trial #1 – 400m (6/16/14)

2014-06-16T22:08:20+00:00

The following Sunrisers participated in tonight's 400m (long course) time trial and did a great job. We will time another 400 in a week or two then move to an 800 for a couple of rounds before River Cities. For those of you considering giving it a shot next time, this is a great way [...]

2013 Southside Swim Time Trial #3 – 800m (7/29/13)

2013-07-30T19:22:52+00:00

I think we finally found the best timing option. Everyone paired up, and we ran two heats using the buddy system to count laps and keep time. The only disadvantage was no practice with drafting and entanglements that will undoubtedly be encountered on race day. Here's how it shook out: 1. Reed Keen 10:12 (1:16/100) [...]

2013 Southside Swim Time Trial #2 – 800m (7/8/13)

2013-07-10T00:10:41+00:00

Sorry again for the delay in the results. We thought we had a solid timing strategy this go around, but an unanticipated situation led to some confusion with the stopwatch...3 people touched the wall in very close sequence near the 800m mark, but only one of them was finished. So we had 2 extra splits [...]
