Day Thirteen: Pacific Ocean
Weekends tend to be quieter for the journey but not this one, a group cycle to Sunny Hunny saw the team cover a total of 2189km. Seven of the team took advantage of the excellent weather to take a trip to the coast, enjoying a fish and chip lunch in Hunstanton, in a 188km round trip.
We’re now well into the second leg of the journey and truly on the other side of the world. To get back, we’ll be crossing the South, then North Pacific oceans for several days. Spanning nearly a third of the world’s surface, this will be no easy task. On the way we’ll be passing by nearly 25,000 islands and meeting a myriad of ocean-dwelling creatures. Not only is the Pacific the biggest ocean in the world, but it’s actually the deepest, hosting the Marina Trench. Our first destination back on land is the shores of Chile, it’s going to take a lot of rowing to get there though.
Fat-burning, muscle-strengthening and aerobic-boosting, a rowing, is a fantastic way of keeping fit. Targeting a large range of muscles: the Prices, Delts, Biceps, Abs, Quads, Obliques, Upper Back, Triceps, Lats, Glutes, Hamstrings and Calves. The rowing machine gives you a full body work out. Another benefit of a rowing machine is that gives you a high-intensity work out with a low impact on the body and lowered risk of injury. Posture improvement is a secondary aspect of rowing, the position and movement of rowing allow you to train muscles that prevent slouching.
