GAME ON
Three classis games for offseason fun and excercise
By Judi Carbary
 


Have fun and stay in shape this offseason with three retro games that have a triathlon twist to build endurance, agility and swim skills.


RED LIGHT, GREEN LIGHT
For this multisport-version of the classic, all participants should set up a practice transtition near a playing field or gym. Select one person to be the stoplight. Everyone else should line up across the field. When the stoplight says "green", players should start running toward transistion. If the stoplight says "red", they must quickly stop. Anyone caught moving is out until the next round. The first person able to sprint to transition and complete a full transition is the winner and the next stoplight.


REVERSE AQUATHLON
Introduce your friends to multisport this season with a do-it-yourself reverse auathlon (run-transition-swim). Find a community pool with a field, track or treadmills nearby. Set up your transition in a safe place near the pool deck or in a locker room with a towel, goggles and water bottle. Set a time for the swim and run based on your current fitness level (such as a 3-minute swim and 6-minute run), and start at the same time as your friend. You'll each try to do as many laps as you can during the set time. Walk safely to transition and get ready for the next leg. Remember to encourage your frends and have fun.


SHARK&MINNOWS
Practice your finish line sprint in this game that can be played on land - or make some simple tweaks to play it in the pool. Place two cones in a line at one edge of the field or gym and two cones on the other side as a start and finish line. Pick a friend or a teammate to be the shark who will stand in the middle of the field. Everyone else will be a minnow and should line up between the start cones. The shark calls out " come minnows" and tries to tag the minnows as they run across the field toward the finish. If you get tagged, you become a shark and get to help tag the minnows. The last minnow to be tagged by a shark is the winner. In the watter, use cones alongside the pool edge to help practice sighting.
