Re: what training have free spirits been doing today?

First marathon of the year. I should really be pleased : 1) stroke rate was pretty consistent at 22-23; 2) heart rate stayed on my cv range apart from two random peaks; 3) I stuck to two fluid breaks at 22km and 35km, and that worked well (previously a break at halfway led to a break at 10k to go, a...

Re: what training have free spirits been doing today?

A new experience for me: genuinely hr (aimed for no more that mid 140s) and spm capped (aimed for less than 20) hour. I just can't seem to relax when rowing (ha!, who'd have thought) , so the hr found its way into the 150s for a good chunk, but in the last third dropped back into the 120s. Very happ...

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

11:01.2 total at 31spm average ( 1:50.2 overall average ) I can barely hear your post over the sound of that gauntlet being thrown down. Great row Dave. ---------- First attempt. This served to prove that my 2km pace is soft (which deep down I knew), and confirm that I won't relish future attempts ...

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 ...

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

Thanks Dave - I had to remind myself of my giddy aspirations set last May: For next year some "realistic" objectives: - A full house of CTCs would be nice, with occasional visits to boat number 2 - A sub 3 hour FM, and a sub 40 minute 10km. In the event, my rather sparse set of objectives proved ach...

Clue time:

1) recently was followed up as a series ;
2) majority New Zealand cast, and the director also helmed the last Thor film.

Easter egg training requirements

I hope John (formally of this parish, and now FM) won't mind me sharing this for the benefit of non Facebookers? Anyone else with a Hotel Chocolat egg should whistle loudly and pretend this isn't here. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190420/9236967d913f0a53225abf939f2f5252.jpg Sent from my VTR-L0...

Re: what training have free spirits been doing today?

I've aborted the rowpro training regime for a bit, and reverted to the IP (PC issues - blasted thing is incompatible with rowpro!). As such, I gently brought myself back to the routine with a 3x 12 minute UT1 (though stepped well back from my peak 2km pace because of recent injuries). Felt fine, but...

Re: Free Spirits CTC Participation and Leaderboard

Well, it was a an idea with shades of good. It seems that the scripts function when you open the spreadsheet in Chrome via the Sheets app, but otherwise things go south. It will however make updating the leaderboard a bit easier.
