FTC 2014 Week One

We have stayed in the top ten during the first week of competition and have collectively rowed over two million metres!
Keep up the epic work ETT'ers.

Has anybody achieved any PB's over the past few days?

It looks like Dave H is heading for half a million metres in the next few days!
Fred and Darren have already joined the 100k club followed closely by Jeff K, Ken, Bill, Rob D, Neil and Wayne.

FTC 2014 Day One

We have started the challenge with gusto, at the time of blogging we are in 8th position and have already clocked up 170,000 metres ; )

Only 13 team mates have uploaded their work-out so I am sure we will have a lot more metres to add the the current total by the end of the day.

Keep up the great work folks x

FTC starts tomorrow!

Hey ETT'ers are you ready for the Fall Team Challenge tomorrow?

Our aim for this competition is to reach a top ten position by the 15th October and to achieve this we need to average 200k+ daily metres. I am fully confident that we can do this team!

Have you any personal goals you want to achieve by the end of the competition? 

Blog Alert and apologies in advance

Just to let you know that in the first two weeks of the FTC it may be a little quieter than usual on the blog because I have some personal commitments that will make it difficult to promise lots of blog banter and team support.
My 15,000 word MA dissertation is due at the end of September and I have also just started a new job too (so having to put in quite a bit of extra work after hours). I hope you will look after yourselves and don't get into too much mischief. Don't forget you can encourage each other on our team Facebook page and you can write messages on the blog too.

Bring on the FTC!!
