Congratulations to all those who participated in the August members challenge. We had two challenges set last month Challenge A. Was to see how many meters you could row in a minute Challenge B was to see how many meters you could row in a month, the target being a marathon. (42.2 km)
Our featured member for this challenge is Ron Beatty who rowed a massive 76,000 meters! Fantastic.
Congratulations to Ron who rowed an impressive 76,000 meters in the month of August. Rom commented that prior to the challenge he’d been swimming 2 km at the club most days , he found the rowing was a different challenge for him and he enjoyed the variety in his training program .
Ron averaged 2.05 mins / 500 m over the distance. Nice Job!
August Challenge Spot Prize Winner – Tracy Poole.
I found the rowing challenge really enjoyable – I’m a bit disappointed that I didn’t end up rowing more meters over the month but I have definitely extended the distance that I am comfortable rowing in one session and have improved my rowing technique which I’m really happy about. I’m looking forward to both keeping up my rowing and the next monthly challenge.
