First Training

“You need 10.000 hours of practice to achieve mastery in a field.”

This record will be challenging to beat. It takes extreme physical and mental  powers to be able to take part in a 24 hour scooting record, and beat the current one that stands at 553.72 km.

Before jumping on our new bought scooters, we did some calculations.

We are no mathematicians so it took us a while to figure this out. (we cant be good at everything, right?!)

Anyway, this is our conclusion:

560 km is enough to beat the current record.

On a 100 meter track you need complete that distance 5600 times to reach 560 km.

24 hours is 86400 seconds.

So: we have 86400 seconds to go 5600 across the 100 meter line.

86400 divided by 5600 is 15.4285714286

What does that tell us?

It tells us that our average time scooting the 100 meters is about 15.4 seconds.

That sounded doable ..-ish  until we went out to do our first 6 km scooter training.

So on that cold winter day we dressed up, got the scooters ready and headed out to scoot around the neighborhood.

It took us 22 minutes.  Which means on average, it took us 22 seconds to go 100 metres.

Ehh… Yeah. You gotta start somewhere, right?

This time would not get us anywhere close to a World Record (took us 22 seconds on average to move 100 meters!)  ..but this is where we stand right now and this does show us how much we need to train to be able to scoot efficiently enough to continue for not just 22 minutes, but 24 hours and on a much faster pace.
