I love this thread title.

Just trying to pluck up the courage to start one called 'Triathlete wanted'...

Smutty Lepoard.

Sooo the row is indoors and we get all hot and sweaty, and then we dive off onto the bike to get all cold and chilly.

Then we run.

Best bring lotsa clothes - might be a bit nippy then !

You can't really get that hot and sweaty in 12 minutes - it's pretty chilly on the machines as well as the doors were wide open.

I did the thing in a pair of leggings and thermal top for the whole event. Figured I'd rather be warm on the ergo than freeze on the bike. I might even wear a Gilet this year for the bike and a pair of gloves

Oui ! Vous !

I'll prob take a windproof for the bike, and maybe the run.

Was gonna order a number belt for this - £3 from Bourne Sports, but the P & P was £3 too - so I balked at that !

I have a lil Hi5 elasticated belt that I use for holding gels - I'll use that instead. Clever eh ?

25/11/2003 at 16:39
so you use the elasticated belt to strap her to your bicycle bell?

Yeaaaaah. Something like that anyway. ;-)

I was just going to use pins :)

They gave out two numbers last year. one for the front for the running and one on the back for the cycle.

Will just pin the number to my t-shirt at the start and pin the number to the gilet for the cycle

Yeah - pins'd work, but it's me new teaching spinning outfit, and don't wanna make holes if I don't have to.

Hey - do you rower guys wear gloves on long rows, or are you all too roughty toughty handed for that. Just asking !

I've never ever worn gloves and neither has any one I know (well not at this club) my hands have been torn to shreds a few times and it's going to happen again very soon I know (winter kicking in and all that)

I imagine that the gloves cause more friction which makes it worse.

That and our hands are all caloused to hell and back

Found out today they may be changing the run course. So there are a lot less turns.

I quite like the old route but the new one will be quicker I guess and still plenty of points to see where people are.
