As we triathletes know, just because it’s winter doesn’t mean training stops. In case you need a little more motivation to put down the fork and slowly back away from the table, the USAT National Challenge Competition is back! Here’s how it works (if you did it last year, things are little different so please read below or find Tiffany’s post on the TriA Facebook page for a full description):
(1) Make sure your USAT membership is up to date (you should be doing that anyway!).
(2) Head over to http://ncc.usatriathlon.org to sign yourself up. (You’ll need your USAT name and password.) Be sure to indicate that you are competing for TriAugusta. Once you’ve signed up, comment under Tiffany’s FB post or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org that you’ve done so.
(3) Starting December 1st, start logging your miles! Unlike last year, you will have to enter your own miles. To do so, just log in as you did to sign up and you will be taken to the online form.
Enter distance for all the swimming, biking, and running that you do. Every little bit counts, not just for the competition but also for your preparation for the coming year.
The NCC goes from December through February. While miles in all three disciplines are counted each month, each month has a particular focus (Dec: swim; Jan: bike; Feb: run), with inter- and intra-club competitions. Don’t get farther behind in your entries than the end of each month, to make sure your miles count properly. Good luck and have fun!!
PS – One little detail, if you do an hour of a spin class, count that as 15 miles of riding.
