The Manassas Park Festival of Races – 5K, 10K, 10 Miler & kids fun run presented an opportunity for Triathlon Trial Lawyer Doug Landau to test his “duathlon legs” before next month’s USAT National Duathlon Championship and World Championship qualifier. Running after cycling, when the leg muscles are fatigued, presents challenged unique to the multisport athlete. Staged out of Signal Hill Park, this new Northern Virginia running event was timed by Set Up Events, the same outfit that puts on the superb Virginia Triathlon Series. Doug Landau is shown here getting Set Up Events’ Greg Hawkins’ autograph at the finish line ! Landau raced in the hilly 10km in the rain, then rode his stationary bike under a park shelter (so as to avoid any chance of a bike crash or other sports injury), and then quickly transitioned in order to run in the 5km. Shown below, Landau is riding his bicycle on his cyclops fluid trainer while getting caught up on his reading ! It is hoped that this specific training will pay dividends in Richmond April 26th.
