It's February again! And that means hordes of lycra-clad athletes descending upon the small West Coast town of Kumara to start the Speights Coast to Coast - a gruelling cross country multisport event.
Competitors cycle 140 kms (three stages of 55km, 15 km and 70 km), run 36 km (including a 33 km mountain stage that crosses the Southern Alps) and kayak 67kms. They can do this in one day or in two days.
We're going to do it in February! (Hopefully!)
Let's join up and virtually do the Coast to Coast. We have three stages, adding up all the distances for the actual C2C legs. You do your own miles and post to the thread updating the stage you've added to.
Run (or walk!): 36kms
Runners/walkers please add your miles to run, bikers of any kind can add their miles to bike, and those using the rower at their gym, or anyone actually really kayaking, add to kayak.
I foresee Kayak as the difficult stage, so I'm going to allow the elliptical machine to be used for that too. You can add 1km to the kayak for every 10 minutes spent on an elliptical. Elliptical can't be used for the run/bike stages though.
Whenever you post your miles, please copy and paste all three lines from the previous log, and add the km's to whichever of the three you need to update. If we tried to do each separately people would lose them! So copy and paste all three stages, and just update the one stage you added to.
It is permissable to add whatever you did in the weekend just been, but otherwise stick to Feb only, don't go back months in your tracker! :)
