One month to go…!

With one month to go until our Channel row, the scale of the challenge is dawning on us. If this is your first visit to our blog, check out our montage below for a flavour of what lies ahead!

We are now training 4-5 times a week with endurance training at weekends (a 75 mile cycle ride and run planned this week), plus a final training session in the boat with our coach Mike Gilbert on 1st April.

Mike recently did a great job coxing the BBC Sport Relief crew of four rowers across the Channel in around 8 hours, proving the crossing can be done in this boat with a crew of four. It demands smooth, fast changes of position, minimal breaks, disciplined intake of food and drink and a high level of fitness.

Thank you for all your generosity so far, with Gift Aid we have raised over £1,300 in individual donations. As we enter the final month of training in preparation for our crossing at the end of April, we welcome your support at MyDonate.
