Re: Captain

Thank you all. I was forced into doing something about the weight last June when I began suffering horrendous joint pain. I did something different this time and joined a group - slimming world, and here I am 4.25 stone lighter and back under 100kg - I would eventually like to row as a lightweight b...

Re: Captain

Hi all, first of all I apologise for my absence and thought you would have ousted me long ago! I have just been contacted by email regarding this discussion and I have passed captaincy to Tako. Tako you should get an email from C2 offering the role to you. I think you just need to accept and it will...

Hi Colin, you are in. Been off this week so only just seen the message.
Hoping to get back on the rower this week. The achilles tendon is still a bit tender though, so I will have to take it even easier.

Re: Dog Days of Summer

Ive done the first weeks total, but now have a problem with the achilles tendon. Not sure if its rowing related, but its painful. Not as bad as yesterday so some hope of improving further. I will need to keep an eye on that though. Up until then I was doing ok, seasons best for 5k and 30 mins. Just ...

Re: July ctc - 2112m

Well my first ctc for several years! Truly dreadful time but just about broke 10 minutes and was pulling 1:46s in the last few metres. Based it on the first row on my new machine about a month ago which 10 mins for 2000m exactly. This time I went through 2k in 9:35, so its improving. Onwards and upw...

Hi Kevin, you need to join the nonathlon website and let me know under what name you are registered. I just checked but I cannot see you at the moment.
Actually scratch that. I found your number, so I have added you. Have fun :D

Re: Nonathlon 2021

ok finally had the courage to post my opening 2k and 5k. The latter I have been working on for the last couple of weeks. Currently scoring in the 600s which gives lots of room for further improvements. Embarrassing but I am where I am and its only going to get better.

Re: Nonathlon Analyser

very impressive piece of work Jon which currently highlights the fact I haven't entered any scores this year yet. Basically because they are just embarrassingly awful at the moment, but I am going to put a couple of times in just to see improvements again as time goes on.

Back on the comeback trail today with 2x10 mins. Covered 3818m @ 2:37 pace. Enough to quicken my breath, but not gasping. Just need to build this kind of row up.
