We floated one boat in this months Cross Team Challenge. Well done to David H, Jeff K, Bill, Rob D and Karyn for some very good entires for the French Kiss interval sets.
For the first time since May 2009 I wasn't able to participate in the CTC due to my knee and toe injuries. I had an MRI scan on my knee on Friday so will find out what recovery programme I've got soon - hopefully if things go well I will be back with you guys for the June CTC which is a 10k session with a 24 spm max stroke rate restriction. Interesting.
Talking of interesting stuff Jo completed her first half marathon this month with a very impressive time of 2 hrs 6 mins. Excellent stuff Jo!
Dave H completed a full marathon for the May Global Marathon Challenge earlier in the month along with Rowan, Karyn, Norman, John G, Leslie, Rob D and Steve C who all rowed a half marathon. Excellent work ETT'ers.
Did any of you achieve a PB?
Any tips and advice for the Summer Solstice Challenge on the 21st June?
Row 21,000 metres to celebrate the Summer Solstice on the 21st June. You can split the total metres into smaller chunks throughout the 24 hour period or add 97 metres and row a half marathon (if you choose this option you have to do the 21,097 metres in one continuous row to qualify for the rankngs).
So to summerise the next few challenges:
- June CTC is 10,000 metres max spm of 24
- Summer Solstice 21,000 metres on 21st June (or 21,097 half marathon)
- The deadline for the Challenge Series 500 metres is 11pm 1st June
