March CTC

The Cross Team Challenge for March is very interesting. It has been set by the Almhult International Rowing Club (AIRC) from Sweden.

The ÄIRC Flat-pack Swedish classic.

4 x distance intervals of your choosing but they must add up 4000 metres.
3 x 2 minute rests in between the intervals.
First interval from a standing start.

After reading the C2 UK forum these are some suggested options:
  • 4 x 1000 (ranking distance)
  • 500 > 2000 > 1000 > 500 (all ranking distances)
  • 1500 > 1250 > 1000 > 250
Has anybody else got any good suggestions?

  2. Ric and I have posted our efforts for 2000,1000,500,500. Easier than I expected, so I'm hoping to have more in the tanks for another go in a week or so. I've just thought about being sneaky and doing 2000,1,1,1998, effectively 2x2k with 6 minutes rest! Not sure what the minimum is that you can program though!
