Lipedema Fitness & Friends

Lipedema Triathlon 2019

This event was created in an effort to spread awareness for Lipedema, and to keep moving and challenging ourselves. June is Lipedma Awareness month.

It is all-inclusive, meaning you can choose your level of involvement (do one lap, one mile, one leg of the race, or the full TRI, whatever your fitness level). It is also virtual, meaning you can do in your own hometown.

PARTICIPATING VIRTUALLY IS A BIG PART OF THIS EVENT, SINCE OUR LOCAL YMCA CAN ONLY ACCOMODATE SO MANY; PLEASE SHARE WHERE YOU WILL BE PARTICIPATING FROM VIRTUALLY IN THE EVENTS BELOW...

Triathlon races vary in distance, the one we are focusing on is the Sprint: 750-meter (0.47-mile) swim, 20-kilometer (12.4-mile) bike, 5-kilometer (3.1-mile) run/walk

Swim - The most common pool sizes built today are either 25 meters or 50 meters (Olympic size) so 750 meters will be 30 lengths in the smaller pool and 15 lengths in the Olympic.

Bike - most bikes (road or stationary) calculate mileage, but if not , just calculate your speed (MPH) by your duration to get you to 12.4 miles.

Run/Walk - On a standard indoor track (200 meters), you would need to do 25 laps for a 5K. On a standard outdoor track (400 meters), you would need to do 12.5 laps. Or 3.1 miles on the treadmill.
