Re: Poll for October ctc

The quotes JonT gives. First one was 3x7’/5’r standing starts, slowest counts Second one was 30’ rate 24 (3000m or so for her, unrestricted rate) The last CTC she did was Nov 2017, 4x750m/3’r She also did 200m, a 4k pyramid, and 10x30”/60” (So the longest thing she’s done recently, straight or in an...

Re: August ctc - 6 x 1' / 1'r, rolling starts except #1

When looking at the top of the C2CTC page I can not see anything regarding standing/rolling start while this thread suggests only standing for the first. Did I overlook something?? The post in the C2CTC thread says standing start for the first rep. It doesn’t matter that the C2CTC page doesn’t ment...

Re: August ctc - 6 x 1' / 1'r, rolling starts except #1

Most recent 500 1:51.1
Most recent 1k 2:02.4
Both of those seem fair given my current fitness :roll:

Tried drag 116
1:59.0x, 1:59.0x, 1:58.5x, 1:58.1x, 1:56.7x, 1:53.6x
1532m 1:57.4x

I'm sure it just gets steadily more painful no matter how you approach it, so... good luck to everyone.

Along similar lines (but using a Scrabble score generator (!!!): Free (7 score, 7 minutes....)

That gives Free 4300m ?rest Spirits 1800m How much rest would this need to match a Devon 5k ...

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

Too hot and too many other things going on. So decided to do the 10k today instead of HM. No chance of getting near last year's SB set in winter. 45:49.5 :(
Hope the Australians are icing it. Good luck everyone. I see some inspired competition going on.

Nice work, Daffy. So you won’t be kicked out of boat one until at least two weeks into the month, if at all. I still remember that month where I was in boat one for a whole two days!

This isn't going to get any bragging rights at the Erg Saloon but I'm proud to post my first million meters :fssmile:. Out of interest, not all my meters are logged on Concept2 because I didn't originally use Ergdata, do people add bulk meters to align the two? I think that’s the way to do it. When...

Re: Meta-nonathlon 2018-2019

Thanks, Rodger. Good fun and motivation. Last season was a bit of setback for me. Only rowed about 55% as much as the season before, mostly due to travel and illness. So far this season is starting off right. Good luck to everyone.

Re: May ctc - 1k / 3'r / 992m, standing starts

Three minutes is a lot of rest. I guess if did the 1k all out, could do the second rep at 6 sec slower pace. So, maybe do the 1k at 1k+2. :-k

So basically 3500m at 2000m pace. But you get some rest, so that’s generous.

Aha, so you’re who that Shiny New is. Welcome back.

It turns out I’ll be travelling for 11 days, so expect to get in 20 days this time.

Re: Mud Season Madness 2018

I’m in. Shouldn’t be any trouble completing it unless I have to travel. I’ll test HM and couple other distances this month. Even so, expect the days before and after to still be at least 10km.

Re: March ctc - 2 x 15 min / 3'r, static starts, the slower to count

3396m and 3398m. Guessed right. 2.7s slower pace than last season’s 30’. :? But at least I’ve built volume back up finally. Got in 90km in the past week. Decided rowing comes first, no matter what’s going on with work or whatever. Good luck everyone; it’s a pretty pleasant CTC.

Drag 134. No penalties, so I don't think I'll be doing this again.

Didn't count strokes directly. Just kept an eye on the s/m of the display. I.e., seeing 23,23,21 thinking plus1,plus2,plus1 and aiming for 0 or slightly positive.

Re: Free Spirits meta-nonathlon

Looks like the leaderboard has rolled over to the next season. Finally found something I'm good at -- beginner gainz! Thanks, Rodger, for providing something interesting for us to do. Would have thought I could do a little better considering the meters I had last season, but it's all progress. Hope ...
