A huge congratulations to our Becky for the completion of an erg marathon, 42'195m and in an amazing time too! A great testament to her self motivation in these difficult times. 👏🚣♀️🤩 #soproud#rowing#Concept2
Challenges to Overcome: Weather
If it's very hot we are at risk of heatstroke, if very cold and wet, hypothermia. We'll have nice long daylight hours but need to keep our skin protected from the sun. We'll have to deal with whatever weather we happen to get, including storms.
Challenges to Overcome: Sores
We'll be taking roughly 3000 strokes every shift on the oars. That's going to affect all parts of us in contact, hands, feet and bottoms. This is made worse by salt water and exposure to sun and wind, we'll need to keep hydrated, moisturised and wrap any injuries quickly to prevent them getting worse.
