Two boats floated in July CTC

We have now got two boats floated in the July CTC.
Come on ETT'ers join us for the Scorpion and tame that sting in its tail.
Hopefully we will become immune to the sting if we do more over the course of the next two weeks?!

  1. Hi, Caroline,

    I gave this one a bit of thought before trying it and agree with Jonathan - my advice would be:

    Pick a "sensible 500m pace" - not the one used at "county fairs" - for the first half, and do the 500-100 at that ~same~ pace. It will get easier, and you'll think your skiving on the 200 and 100 - but you're recovering for the 2k.

    Breathe more than you need for 2 minutes.

    Set off the 2k at slightly below your 2k pace, then up the speed as you settle, aiming at 500m to exceed the speed that you did the 500-100 bit (so if you can imagine a speed to exceed, you'll know how fast to do the 500-100)

    As ever, in the last 250m, ETT.

    Good luck, all; this one's raced in the head, not heart - albeit useful.

  2. Great work team! We just need another two fellas and a lady to fill a third boat - hopefully we can do it! Cheers Pongi :)
