Re: Free Spirits CTC Participation and Leaderboard

Only 24 participants. I was surprised by this. Looking back, this is the lowest number for any of the monthly challenges since August 2013. Back then it was a very complicated challenge with mixed stroke rates. Understandable. But it seems this wasn't just a Free Spirits issue, the participation wa...

Re: September ctc - 1800m / 3'r / 1200m / 3'r / 1800m

We don't worry about times (well, it's not the absolute be all and end all :oops: ), we just like filling seats. Any time is good. I have my pride and you are too kind and diplomatis as always :fsbgrin: See Mikel, if you'd posted a score we'd have floated another boat instead of having 4 folks sat ...

Re: XVII Australian Masters Games

Judging from the website, this looks as much a festival as a sporting event. Nice!
Best of luck to all three of you!

Now just don’t make things more complicated by entering both a lightweight and heavyweight score in the same month. Theoretically possible.
I wouldn't dare, theoretically.

Hi Fred, thanks for the update!

Re: September ctc - 1800m / 3'r / 1200m / 3'r / 1800m

Hi Louise, Like Max said, you can take your 3 x 2k / r4 as a guide for the pace in this ctc. I would estimate you can do the ctc 1 second or 1.5 sec faster per 500m. The 3 minutes rest instead of 4 in your PP session shouldn't make too much of a difference. Perhaps do the first 1800m at 2:13-somethi...

Re: Meta-nonathlon 2019/2020

This could be interesting this year as I am doing all distances (apart from 500m) at R19 in a vain attempt to improve technique and strength. Seeing you're scoring 98's and 99's on middle distances already there is clearly a lot more to come. My times/distances all are better than last season (as f...

Re: Meta-nonathlon 2019/2020

Cheers, Gregor.

Well, you're not the only one with those pesky reds (predominantly).
Is going to be a long wait at the traffic lights to see them all turn green.

Looks like Torquemada (Pepe, I believe) and SandbaggerOne had a decent start to the season though!

Meta-nonathlon 2019/2020

With the 19/20 rowing season almost two and a half months underway, it's time to start up a new meta-nonathlon. What is the meta-nonathlon and what has changed? Here's a quick summary. What is the Free Spirits meta-nonathlon? The meta-nonathlon is a motivational tool, based on the nonathlon of two c...

Re: Meta-nonathlon 2018-2019

To (hopefully) avoid any confusion, this will be a second filter list on the nonathlon website. One for Free Spirits that want to take part in the meta-nonathlon (and are eligible to do so). This list will most likely be shorter than the first, normal filter list. If you want to appear on the normal...

Only guessing, but I guess that it pops up as soon as Stan has added Roger to the team for this season ;-)
More likely, when I'm done working and my summer holiday starts. Mid July.

Re: June ctc - 20 x 300m / 1'r

Finally decided to do this one. The only other option would have been this Sunday, but I didn't want to leave it to the last day. I think I can be reasonably happy with the result: 22:47.0 @1:53.9. Pace was very uneven though. It's just enough to get ahead of Jon & Jon for now, but as I'm still over...

Re: May CTC - 3 x 1k / 5 min rest

Actually wondering why so many wait with their entries until the last days of the C2CTC challenges. In my case it's just a case of delaying something unpleasant until there's so little time left that I can't wait much longer :oops: Especially sprinty intervals are not really my cup of tea, must do ...

Re: May CTC - 3 x 1k / 5 min rest

The bad news: I had to do this as heavyweight still (77.1 on the scales this morning).
The good news: the result was better than expected with 1:55.2 average pace (1:56.3 / 1:55.5 / 1:53.8 ).
