July CTC

We didn't float a boat in the June CTC (mostly my fault as I forgot to log my session on the website) as we are desperately in need of female ETT participants in the monthly challenges.

Well done to the four guys who entered for June:

82Empty the Tanks I7716.2m
Joseph Smyntek (H)
Galeere (H)
Jonathan Turns ETT (H)
Bill_Schmidt (L)

Let's aim to get at least two boats floated in the July challenge set by Fitness Matters:

One fifth of a full marathon

Row three reps of 2813 metres with four minutes rest

Record the time taken for your slowest rep of 2813m (not the total time for 8439m).

Rolling starts are allowed for reps 2 and 3.

Every boat filled will combine to give a full marathon distance rowed.

The twist is you ONLY LOG YOUR SLOWEST REP so you must commit to the challenge.

Good luck with this one ETT'ers!
