September's Cross Team Challenge is a simple, straight forward 1000 metres from a static start. No stroke rate restrictions either!
In theory, for this sort of distance you should be aiming for a pace that is under your 2k pace; for me my best ever 2k pace was 2:08 / 2:09 so technically I need to be aiming for 2:05 / 2:06 but I will see how things go.
I can honestly say that achieving 2:09 would be pretty ambitious right now. I have a feeling this CTC will need a couple of attempts for me to get a decent time.
Good luck with this one ETT'ers.
