Re: Anyone had any PBs recently?

I noticed Phillip that your 1 min IRL row is so good you scored 100 and thus it’s the standard the rest of us are being compared against. That’s an awesome row!

Re: January CTC - 1k 2r/520m 1r/500m

Just pipped you Lesley - but probably only because I had a target to aim for!

Left you a few days to bump me out: don't think I've time to have another go if I'm to meet the January challenge. Got a lot of hours to make up before the 31st...

Well done Fred & Lesley. And Happy Birthday Lesley! Great that you have set me a target. My January is blighted by overseas work travel but you can be sure I’ll be coming for you towards the end of the month 😂. Louise

Re: VTC 2020 - Virtual TeamChallenge

Nice thread Tako. It’s not at all obvious you need to sign up separately unless you’re one for details. I’m work travelling loads of January, so tried to pack some early meters in 😀.

Re: December ctc - 7 x 1 minute / 70“r

It doesn’t float another boat, but seeing you lads all fight for your places made me feel I’d accepted boat 3 too easily. So I channelled the ethos of those lads from Skibereen (closed my eyes and pulled like a dog)... Boat 2 is mine again 😀. F641B2E3-5380-4574-BBD9-D2A9AF539C6B.jpeg Will I hang in ...

Re: Indoor Rowers League 2019/2020

Although we never managed to get two teams together, I’ve had a go at the different events each month for ‘fun’ (😂). Fuelled by high calories Xmas treats this month turned out to be a cracker (pun intended)... 97896FDC-1EDF-41C6-AB2D-DE61C2618979.jpeg Not only was that much faster than I thought I c...

Ah, nicely done Lesley! You can tell by the fact my last rep wasn’t any faster that I was absolutely shot... I don’t think I’ll be sneaking that place back this month. Besides, I’ve started on the chocolate already 😂

Re: December ctc - 7 x 1 minute / 70“r

With my usual complete ignorance on pacing, I overcooked this and had to bail out after 4 intervals (who knew you couldn’t go flat out 7 times in a row 😂). What I didn’t realise was that on my next attempt I shouldn’t hit the ‘rerow’ button. Yep, the PM5 bailed me out after 4 intervals 😱. Reckon I w...

Re: Trying to refocus

Hi Andrea, I haven’t been rowing long but I’m with Peter on this one. I’ve tried a few sporting activities in recent years in an attempt to regain some fitness but none has hooked me until now. Definitely the combination of challenges, some of which are fun (CTC: so glad you kicked me out of boat 1 ...

Re: Scottish Rowing Indoor Championships 2019

Even if you didn’t manage quite what you hoped for on the day, that is still extraordinarily fast in my book. And I’m quite sure that all that training will lead to some impressive nonathon scores in the coming weeks. Louise

Thanks Peter, thanks Tako. The last interval wasn’t so bad as the pain was at least short lived. It was the one before 😱. I definitely won’t be trying to go faster 🤣

Thanks Plummy. I really did just copy Tako. I’m going to pay tomorrow though because Life has been getting in the way of rowing these last few weeks and that was a bit of a shock to the system. I think the morning walk to work might hurt a bit 😂
