Fitness test

On Wednesday last week we all had to complete some parts of the Lifeboat fitness test. This consisted of some practical assessments to check that we are all capable of completing a set of simple tasks which might be expected of us on the boat: carrying a heavy weight for 50yds (simulates carrying a stretcher), lifting the same heavy weight up a certain height (simulates lifting a person out of the water) and so on. Naturally the lads managed to find a way to turn it into an opportunity to prove just how macho they are!

And the winner? Rob of course...able to hold a full barrel of water away from his body for a full 30secs. Iron man...
