At the start of lockdown Champs invited members to its Strava group to log training efforts and keep us training together albeit virtually.
We were determined to keep fit even if not on the river or erging together. It’s been a great success with 28 athletes recording 62 activities including runs, ergs, rides, weights sessions and circuits. We have been able to give each other ‘kudos’ and there’s been some healthy competition on split times and bike speed! Great for comparing notes on good routes and sharing photos. The weather has helped a lot. All our experiences of lock down have been very different- some have started new jobs, some been furloughed, some dealing with the logistics of working from home combined with children and other caring responsibilities and some working long hours as front line workers but it’s been great to have Strava to keep us motivated and in touch and training together.
