Re: Name that tune

Spot on Paul. I’ve really enjoyed my kids discovering stuff like Eminem. They’re always really surprised to find Mammy has a CD or two tucked away.

Off you go then. What can you hit us with this time?

Re: Name that tune

Thanks Paul,
Let's have some classy rhyming:

"His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy
There's vomit on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti"

Re: Name that tune

Apologies, I dropped the ball the last couple of days (busy at work) and didn't respond to earlier suggestions. You are of course correct Paul. I saw them at Glastonbury a few years ago (educating my kids!) and they were truly awesome live. If you ever get the chance, I highly recommend it. I find t...

Re: Name that tune

It looks like you all need a couple more lines. This band may be relatively recent (aka this century) but they are huge globally:

Re: Name that tune

Thanks Peter. I could go really modern and ask my teenagers, but probably none of us would stand a chance then. Here’s something that had a bit of global reach:

Re: Name that tune

Well it’s definitely Oasis. Many of their songs from that album merge in my head, but I think it’s “Don’t look back in anger”?

Re: Foot straps and othe questions

Ever thought of rowing strapless I have started rowing warm ups and cool downs strapless Paul - mainly because of reading you advocating it! I could probably manage my slow steady rows strapless now, but I’m quite sure not anything very fast. Something to aim for... I imagine my technique leaves a ...

Re: Foot straps and othe questions

I have often wondered the same. I’m in position 4 because it feels comfy, but as a LW female, I find there is little weight to keep me attached to the seat when “sprinting” (quotes to signify all things are relative :fsbgrin: ). I wondered if a different foot position might change the angle and glue...

Re: "The last workout of this season"

My last workout of the season was a very gentle 3x20min r2 with a slow SPM. This reflects my efforts to remember why I started rowing in the first place (to be a little healthier in my middle age). Like many, I struggle to fit rowing around a full on job and kids, and I figured rowing a bit more gen...

On the bright side I got a 50 point Nonathlon haul and a full-house of green in the Metanonathlon :fsbgrin: :fsbgrin: Nicely done Jon! Your nonathlon is looking classy: I'm thinking maybe you should aim to turn the whole row blue next season :fsbgrin: since now you've already achieved a fully green...

Re: Indoor Rowers League 20/21

the adjusted time for that row is 1:25!!!
I like your thinking Jon. I’ll take the 1:25 :lol:

That 841 is an outlier. I imagine you’re going to smash it this week! No pressure :fsbgrin:

And then there were 3 :fsbgrin: My 1:56.5 is going to look ever so slow compared to you lads but it gave me 900 nonathlon points, so not so tardy after all. Amazing what a few weeks steady rowing can do for your fitness... May I just say what a pleasure it's been rowing with ye all. I'd have done fa...

Re: Indoor Rowers League 20/21

Back seems to be OK again (I can at least reach to put my socks on now :lol: ) so I took the advantage of a day off work (Happy St Patrick’s Day!) to crank out a 10k. Was woefully slow - 4 mins off my best from just a few months ago - but I guess that reflects zero rowing for about six weeks. Not su...

Re: Indoor Rowers League 20/21

I did indeed have a very slow standing start 2k rep from the start of the month so I’ve stuck that in. Sat on the rower this am for the first time in 3 weeks. The fact I could lower myself on to it and get back up again shows a marked improvement in the back muscle! Rowed very gingerly for a couple ...

Re: Indoor Rowers League 20/21

Lads, it's looking increasingly like I'm going to let you down this month. I pulled a muscle in my back a couple of weeks ago and it appears to be healing at middle-aged lady pace (rather than the superfast speed I anticipated in my fantasy world where I am still young and fit!). I may have a very s...

Re: Indoor Rowers League 20/21

Blimey that’s fast Kevin! Got mine in this afternoon. A bit of a more stately pace giving me 271m, which is 10m short of my best (ie the only other time I’ve ever rowed 1min :lol: ) but I was WAY fitter then, so pretty content. Louise
