Season 6 : Episode 1 – A Before in a Sea of Afters November 15th, 2013

The wait is over – the Two Gomers are back for Season 6 – Two Gomers Race a Triathlon!  Here’s what you’ll hear in this episode:

The guys (re)introduce themselves, talk about how to tell G1 from G2, and give a little GomerHistory.  Anthony gives the details on his very first swim at the gym.  It is hard to be naked.  Luggage is a good way to carry around your swim trunks.  Swim trunks may not be the best thing to wear while training for a triathlon.  It is hard to breathe.  Goggles rule, but Gomers are SLOW.

Goggles

These are the goggles we’re supposed to wear, right?

And finally, the Gomers answer the question “What distance triathlon will they race?”

It’s gonna be a great season, Nation, we can’t wait to go on the journey with you!  Monday Survey for this week:  What are you looking forward to about Two Gomers Race a Triathlon?  We want to know (so we make sure we do them)!  Happy Running!

  1. Don’t worry about getting in the pool. The polite thing to do is, if there is only one person in the lane, put your feet in the pool and wait until they get to your end and get their attention and then ask them if it is ok to split the lane (they will say yes). Then you stay on one side of the lane and they stay on the other. If you just jump in and start swimming, they will keep swimming in a circle and you will run into each other (bad form). If there are already 2 people in the lane then it is important to pick a lane where the people are about your pace. Then you need to ask them to circle swim so you can fit in. This is more of an imposition. I have never had anyone refuse to split but if the two people in the lane already know that they are incompatible (one kick boarder and one swimmer). They might ask you to pick a different lane or some negotiation will be needed. It is much easier to split than to circle swim so you might try to find a time when the pool is not too full. Also if you are tired and need to stand at the end of the lane, do it in the corner of the lane so that the other person can flip turn in the middle of the lane. For some reason people like to hit their feet on the mark on the wall even when they are splitting the lane.
