There's a thread for you two chaps on URWFRC! could be just what you need!

Oh yes!

Here is the link for the Civil Service Sports Council 'Barbados Challenge': http://www.cssc-london.co.uk/barbados/index.htm

Scroll down to the table of events to find the 'Dry Triathlon'.

You'll need to be a member of cssc to take part. Although from experience, as long as you are a civil servant, you can enter the event and let them know that your cssc membership is being processed in the meantime.

Cheers Daz - I am a member of cssc though not of a cssc gym any more so will see what I can find out. Have challenged a few lard arses in work to see who can go furthest.

This looks like fun. What's this CS stuff then ? Can i join !

Cougie - I think its Civil Service Sports Club or summit like that. Any civil servant or those who work for organisations which used to be publicly owned (I think) can join.

I think if you are married to a civil servant you can take part too.
Also, if you have a good friend in civil service, you could use their name.

You can unofficially use my name & number if anyone really wants to enter. That means you have to take me to Barbados if you win though....

Just waiting for the reasons with anticipation.

Don't think many doing it. I saw one girl finish (started hour before me), and then kept an eye on the distances of the guy in front of me - who a friend of mine used to work with and said he was a dam good runner.

Anyways I started off ok with 1400m for the 5min row. Then got on the treadmill and did 0.86miles for 5mins.

Then came the confusing bit. First of all the ex-bike was very upright and a sloping forward saddle (they couldnt change it apparently cos others before me would have been at a disadvantage). Damn damn uncomfortable. But I got up to speed and picked a reasonable but hard resistance level. Normally for 5mins I prob do around 2.5miles but the comp said 1.38miles(?). This was only 0.04 ahead of bloke and 0.08 ahead of girl. Which makes me wonder whether or not this bike wasn't calibrated to take resistance levels into consideration, but rather revs. Hope not.

Oh well will see!

right, so a combined 3.12m by my reckoning Daz. Looks like I'm nipping to the offey to get you that rum then (although if I get a good bike......)
22/10/2003 at 10:16
if you get me on row and run then you win......fair?
bikes are all calibrated differently, esp this piece of crap we used :O)
22/10/2003 at 14:15
No chance for me on the row and there won't be much difference on the run I reckon. Give me a week or so after Dublin to sober up & I'll see what I can do. Presentation at the CSSC x-country at Richmond then hopefully.
22/10/2003 at 14:48

22/10/2003 at 14:52
Trying to - it's on the board so boss can't moan when I nip over to SW London for the afternoon to get nice & muddy.
