Re: Lifetime Millionaires Club

Don't worry Tako, I'm not going to race you for it (especially since you've got a healthy head start) :fsbgrin:

Re: Millionaires club-Season

Jill, it's good to see that you're back to regular rowing this month :)
I hope you manage to keep going, and I'm looking forward to your messages on this thread! It will be a while though before I get to a million for this season :wink:

Cheers, Jan. Looks like the target I set for you was just right then. :fsgrin:
Looks like it, I might wait for you to set me a target for next month's CTC (20x300m r 1 :shock:) :fsgrin:

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: 2018/19 Summary and Aspirations for 2019/20

Last year started good for me, with PBs for the FM and 6k. Then things went a bit quieter, because I somehow wasn't able to push myself to keep going when things got hard. So I got a decent amount of meters logged and challenges completed, but rowing only at an average pace. This April I managed to ...

Re: December ctc - 30 minutes, standing start

Impressive row Claudius, and great improvement by Dave! =D>

My next cunning plan is for all other lightweights to row themselves into boat 1, so I could end up in boat 2 without doing any further rowing :fsbgrin:

Re: Meta-nonathlon 2018-2019

Thanks Tako and David, the 60mins was an aborted PB attempt - it was just too hot last Sunday :(
My goal is to get everything nice and green (apart from the FM which I didn't do last year) and to get at least 910 points.
Also thanks to Rodger for doing this, it's a great way to track your progress!

Re: July ctc - 555m/111m/444m/777m/333m/222m/666m 70“r

My first attempt at this month's CTC, and it was hard ... Plan was to pace it somewhere in the 1:52 - 1:53 range, with the 111 and 222 all-out sprints, the 333, 444, 555 around 1:52 and the 666 and 777 around 1:55. All went fine until after the 777 which I probably overcooked a bit, the next 333 was...

Re: June ctc - 10k, no stroke rate restrictions

Very impressive rowing from everybody =D> =D> =D> This is a CTC where the risk of HD-ing seems larger than in most other ones ... I've had 3 attempts so far, and inspired by other people's results I tried to go at my PB pace (40:38.0) for all of them. That would get me into boat 4 (no way would I be...

Re: Anyone had any PBs recently?

I'll have to thank Tako for this one :fsbgrin: After he threatened to overtake me in the Nonathlon I decided to go for a few easy points yesterday, trying to improve my 6k time to last year's SB. However with about 2k to go I noticed that the forecasted finish time was only a few seconds behind my P...

I had a second attempt today, almost 2 sec/500m faster than last time: from 2:10.2 to 2:08.3 average. It won't trouble Jan (who is yet to post a score) but may spur Jon P to have another go. Great improvement Rodger, looks like you're getting to grips with the pacing for this one and there may be m...

There are not enough days left in the month for me to have another go.
