I really should research things before saying Yes - but i am so glad I did for this event.

Conveniently (for me) right outside my office and in front of one of the tube exits at Canary Wharf. It's a great pop up and a good location for people to get to and to gather a bit of support from passers by.

The idea is a team of three complete a triathlon - 3mins Swim in an endless pool (which is super cool), 4mins on a static bike & 3mins run. Essentially anyone can take part - i am sure most can jog for 3mins.

We were able to have a warm up on a spare treadmill/bike pre race and it was time to get on stage (eeek).

It was nice that we didnt all go at the same time so we could support and cheer each other on.

I have to say that 3mins, full pelt at 3% incline is seriously tougher than expected.

Good challenge, nice and well organised and a great opportunity to build team work!

Would love to do again!
