Re: Indoor Rowers League 2021-22

Louise - any distance is a point scoring distance [emoji846] I had a go today. 308 was better than my last effort for the CTC. So this was a SB but still way off my PB. On reflection I set off too easy and felt I had more to give at the end. But it’s done now at least. Sent from my iPhone using Tapa...

Re: 2022 - Virtual Team Challenge

We have managed to pull ahead of the reddit team and have opened up a small lead. Dwayn has not logged meters for a couple of days, so when they come through (which they almost certainly will) that will also help. Keep pushing everyone =D> =D> There are 8 days remaining! 1 Superheros Dwayne K. Adams...

Re: Indoor Rowers League 2021-22

Me again!

5 times entered and 4 remaining this month with just over a week to go.

Thanks to all who have entered a distance. I plan to blast through mine tomorrow mid-UT2 session.

Re: January ctc - 6k TT

Well done all! I am still not in the mood for entry into the “pain cave” but had another go aiming for 2:03 pace after my last effort at 2:05. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20220117/3627ef4aa848ed93cfeda019d059b672.jpg Pleased that I did better than planned.

Re: 2022 - Virtual Team Challenge

The latest scores - Note that I had messed up setting up the challenge in the first place and the positions from last year were displaying incorrectly. That should be fixed now, and we are in exactly the same place this year as last....12th. There are 18 days remaining! 0 Superheros Nobody here........

Re: Upcoming Challenges

I’ll put a proper update up later this weekend. Unfortunately I seem to have broken the tool that generates the report that can be posted here. An easy fix, but still needs a bit of time and effort.

Re: The Pete Plan etc

Have a good weekend Spider. I took Tako’s advice and incorporated a 6k into my week. Decided to do it as a rating ramp of 22/24/26 with the option of dropping back to 22 if I wasn’t feeling good. Nothing special, but I have a 6k as a fall back for CTC if needed. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2022...

Just to keep Spider company I will start to log some sessions here.

Thanks for taking the time to give me all of the information Boris. As Tako points out, the challenge icon is a bone not a skull. The skull is for the 10k distance which is available to children and adaptive athletes. I don't think I changed the icon from last year. Thomas wrote an excellent tool wh...
