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...

I would have much preferred the standard 2k over this dreadful sprinty stuff!

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 ).

Re: Meta-nonathlon 2018-2019

As an administrative notice: when the nonathlon site will renew to start the 19/20 season, it can take a while before I set up the new meta-nonathlon.
For efficiency reasons I tend to wait until a decent number of Free Spirits have registered for the new season and are included in the FS filter list.

Re: 2018/19 Summary and Aspirations for 2019/20

Goals for 2019/2020:
1. To stop/reverse this personal trend:

2. To regain lightweight status
3. To get fairly close to my PBs (I'm not saying rowing new ones).

Re: Free Spirits CTC Participation and Leaderboard

Ian, thanks for taking over this baton. You have me on 65 lifetime CTCs. I think I'm on 72. It was 70 in the list I posted in January and I have done 2 since. Also, you are bound to miss some challenges from Free Spirits who were not in the 'Club 50' if you are taking the lifetime numbers from the g...

Hi, can I join in next year, and if so, what will it mean not having any scores to compare against? I was once competitive, but fell off the erg a bit for a few years. However I'm back on it now. If you did row (some of) the pieces last year, but haven't registered them on the nonathlon website: yo...

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

I seem to remember that this workout is sometimes used as a pace predictor for a 2k. Is that right?

Re: Meta-nonathlon 2018-2019

Thanks for all your efforts in producing the tables Rodger. I love this chart (maybe not at the end of next year though). Can you rattle one off for the last 3~4 years with overall totals? I seem to remember you've done them before. Need a bit of ego boosting, plummy? :lol: :wink: Here you go (I wa...

The 2018/2019 season is done. Big congratulations to Jon Taylor for topping this season's league! ^O^
The first 10 on the list deserve recognition for reaching a score of 900+ indicating an overall improvement over last season! =D>

May CTC - 3 x 1k / 5 min rest

BW Rowing announced their CTC choice for May: "3x1k 5min rest".

I take it that means 5 minutes in both rest intervals, 10 minutes rest total.
Tough workout, decent warm up required.

Place your bets!
