The For-40 Challenge
Can you paddle 400km in 40 days?
How it works
So how far is 400km?
Roughly how many sessions a week would I need to do?
ie. 70km or 7hr20min on the water each week
What else will I need to do?
Without the Rest you don’t get the training benefit. In fact your performance will decrease.
Increasing the paddling work you do via the For-40 Challenge means you therefore need to be prepared to increase your Rest. This may mean making other sacrifices to give yourself an extra hour’s sleep at night or extra down time on the weekend.
Having a well-balanced diet of good quality foods will also be important for recovery and ensuring your body has the best fuel possible at its disposal for the next session.
How will I keep track of kilometres?
To see the kilometres mount up you can either track your own total or use the For-40 Weekly Survey.
