Is anyone else having a go at Salford Rowing Triathlon on 14th December? (details: www.agecroftrc.co.uk)

Consists of 3k ergo row, 15k cycle and 5k run.

I was going to do Stockport 10m on that day, but I've signed up for this instead, and I guess it's keeping my, (somewhat limited), training a bit more varied than just running.

As it's run by a rowing club though, I'm a bit worried everyone else will have finished the race before I leave the rowing machine ;-)

Jane - there are 2 or 3 threads on this already. I'll bump them up.

One is cyclist wanted, and the other is team triathlons. Welcome to the gang !!

oh THAT's why you're all bumpy, Cougie...

The fastest male rower will not complete the row part in less than 10 minutes and it's such a small section of the whole race time wise it's not much of an advantage to the rowers. I'd be far happier with a 5 k row :)

Be realistic with your ergo time if you want to go with people at that. If you're fast on the bike and slow on the row put a quicker ergo time down than you can do. The fast ergo people who will be there will be slow on the bike, assuming of course the quicker rowing machine people are the rowers. Although it may not be the case.

I think the hope is for 300 people this year. I think it'll be more likely 200 but I don't know

Down to 12.12 for 3k now. Sheesh - it's hard work ! Starting to rue the day someone posted this event up ! ;-)

Not bad JJ, depends on her weight etc... But i'd say it's very good all the same regardless unless she weights 20 stoneof course

I might do the team event as well by the way I'm thinking on it.

Take it nice and easy on the ergo and bike and give it all on the run. Use other peoples times on the other two sections. Decisions decisions........

I'd say she was about 11 - 12 stone.

I'm gonna get my ass kicked by girlies !
Sob sob sob.

Hey - so if I lie about my weight, my time looks better ? If that's the case. I weigh 3 stone 2. Am I OK with that time ? Am I ? Huh ? huh ?

Those ickle seats aren't v comfy on the derriere are they ? I'll be glad of my bike shorts methinks !
27/11/2003 at 16:11
it's a decent score
27/11/2003 at 16:14
Awww Cougie - she's a very sturdy girlie. Experienced, advanced diving instructor and canoes all the time.

S**t ! I need a radical diet then ! ;-)

Atkins anyone ? ;-)

Cheers Rob.

I've put 15 mins down on the form.
You guys have got me thinking. I'd better go down the gym and have a quick ergo trial to see if thats realistic, maybe 15 mins is too long.
Tell ya later

try sitting and rowing on one for 90 minutes! now that's sore ;)

Lighter you are the better your score looks yup, but even a light weight rower should be looking at 6.40 for 2 k (man that is)

badminton for me tonight, my legs are wrecking from weights this morning so I think I'll avoid any more ergo work today

27/11/2003 at 16:17
i missed how many posts in writing the last one?

I'm puting down 11 minutes on my form, I'll expect you all whizzing past me on the bike.

cougie - when you do that in 12.12 can you get off the machine to do the rest afterwards? or is that your all out score?
27/11/2003 at 16:18
PS Rob is it possible to do individual AND team events on the day?
It wasn't possible at Salford Tri in July, unless you could clone yourself or something!

I'm sure they won't object to doing that at all. Besides if there's interest from members within their own club I'm sure they'll bend the rules for us :)

I'd hate to turn up and by the geezer only doing the 3k on the machine - waking up that early for 10 minutes?

Well, I got off the rower, and taught spin for 45mins - so that was my bike and then ran to work straightaway, but I don't think that's quite equivalent to this race !

I'll do some more rowing and running tomorrow anyway.
