February CTC Update

I had a little blogging break for a week or two, I hope you didn't mind; January and February have been crazy months for me so I needed a bit of down time from ETT updates.

I am gearing up for the imminent Mud Season Madness that starts on 1st March - 31st March 2014. Are you ready for it? Row or ski 5k for 25 days in March.

Today though I have got the latest on the February Cross Team Challenge. We have 3 boats in the rankings but only one floated in the points table.

In boat one we have some impressive distances, with some great entries from those in boats two and three too!

  1. Everyone needs a break every now and again. Good to see you back.

    For me January is the busiest month of the year, with a mountain of accounts and tax returns to do by the 31st January deadline, added to which I managed to keep the cold/headache I started just after Christmas, going all the way through January. Just what you want when doing tax returns!

    Anyway, managed to finish the tax returns and eventually shake off the cold, so have been back training a bit harder for the past few weeks with 25/30k rowing each week and a further 40 or so miles out on the bike.

    Managed to put in a CTC time, though admittedly it was comfortable rather then flat out.....will try harder this month.

    1. Glad you are back to your usual fitness levels Jonathan - that cold sounded like it was a stinker!!

  2. I wanted to try one more time, but february suddenly ended. Those 28 day :)
