I am thinking about doing a half ironman. I can run and bike outside, but obviously at this time of year, I need an indoor swimming pool. All I can seem to find is the YMCA and Silverlake in NKY. I know there has to be lots of indoor pools out there. Let me know where you go! Thanks!

I'd check out the masters groups at uc and Xavier and see if a time works for you. As far as summer swimming the Lincoln pool in the west end is nice as its long course and cheap. The local tri club sponsors open water swims from time to time or you could head to east fork or ceaser creek or the Ohio, it's not that bad ;-)

Check with NKU to see what is required to use their indoor pool. If you are a Kentucky resident they may even be willing to sponsor you for an ironman event.

Oh, I forgot to mention they also have an indoor running track you might find convenient.

Thanks for the ideas! What is the JCC? I'm living in Newport and work in Florence, so anything relatively close would be nice.

JCC = Jewish Community Center

JCC: Home

Mayerson JCC
8485 Ridge Road,
Cincinnati, OH 45236 (south, off of Ronald Reagan Highway)

====================================

Before you commit to ANYTHING, make sure that you understand when the pool is available. I joined a YMCA in Chicagoland a few years back just to find that they only had about 10 hours of lap swimming, all during the 9-5 worktime.

The UC facilities are brand new and really great, a lot of room to swim and a hot tub, all of that. There's also the river which is where they swim the Cincy triathlon. :-)

Make an effort to contact NKU. If you can gain access to the facility it would work out very week between you living and work location.

Default Nku

I contacted NKU, and they said unless you're student, faculty/staff, alumni, or immediate family of someone who belongs, you can't become a member. Oh well, signed up for YMCA in Ft. Thomas. Decent price and close to home and work.

I understand your reasoning. But as a resident of NKY I would still complain to someone. The only value of a public university is to serve the public. NKU has a facility you would simply like to use. They are a public resource of the area, sanctioned by the state of Kentucky. The reasons they gave you are restrictive, not what a publically financed university anywhere should be allowed to do. They should be capable of limiting participation to Kentucky residents without extended fees, but that is it.
