Since my last HM post we have had a few extra team mates put their names down to get involved.
The ETT HM crew consists of:
|Previous HM time||HM pace||Actual Result||Difference?|
|Matt C||01:27:09||below 02:03|
|Steve C||01:17:23||below 01:50|
|Nick W||01:46:00||below 02:30|
|Mark B||01:19:30||below 01:52|
|Jeff K||01:35:44||below 02:16|
|Norman||01:28:30||below 02:05||01:27:41||49 seconds faster|
|John G||01:24:58||below 02:08|
Norman has already rowed his half marathon and improved his previous result with 49 seconds to spare! Nice work there.
Tips and advice for a HM
- Dave P suggests having a gel / drink handy just in case you need to have a slurp mid-session
- Dave P breaks down the full 21,097 metres into a series of 5k sessions to make the task more managable. In the final 10k he increases his pace every 2.5k depending on how his is feeling and then smashes the final 2k
- Caroline J advices to eat your prefered fuel at least an hour in advance of your HM; any closer to the time and you may feel a little nauseous
- Matt C has been in training for weeks and has followed this plan by Eddie Fletcher
Godd luck to everybody rowing a HM this week and to the rest of the ETT team who are toiling away on their indoor rowing machines for the Virtual Team Challenge this January.
