Re: Lifetime Millionaires Club

Shiny new Gold star awarded Max - well done on the 2 million.

I'm going to start pruning the list I think as there appear to be names on there who are no longer rowing or no longer Free Spirits. I hope not to but may goof on one or two...

Re: Name that tune

That sounds right. I knew it wasn't Gordon Giltrap as he was an acoustic guitarist (one hit wonder with Heartsong - the theme from the BBC Holiday TV series). I actually saw him in concert twice in the late 70's and actually have his autograph (hardly worth much on the open market though)

For 84 LWT that's truly astonishing. Very well done sir (glad I'm in your team ;-) )

The one I'm thinking of is nothing like Oliver's Army and much more a slow ballad...it's a teaser though

Is that another line? - as I know that line as the opening line of a classic - but for the life if me can't come up with the darned title

Re: Beginners

Hi Maxscience - welcome to the forum. I don't use Zwift but do use Rowpro from time to time (more so for solo rowing distraction to be honest against pace boats but occasionally on line when it suits). There is a thread dedicated to Rowpro sessions but it is full of cobwebs as it is rarely used I th...

Re: Anyone had any SEASON's bests recently?

After my 100m and 1 min PBs this week I had a go at my 500m to try for an SB. It was 1:38.5...... but is now 1:37.0! - and not only a 1 year SB but my third fastest of all time. Actually got some Nonathlon points too - 14 of them. :-)

The last 150m were truly horrible! :~c :~c

Re: No Sweat !

Hi Portoman. Interesting one - decades ago I could go for a long run and barely sweat, play badminton or squash exactly the same and even when I started rowing I sweated very little. Now, it's very different but I rarely row less than 10km. I would consider 15 minutes as just the warm up and if I wa...

Oooo - you mean I'm ahead of Peter (1m) and only 2m behind Ian. I think I'm beginning to like sprints as it doesn't make me feel so slow ;-)

Well done fellas - great news. I'd love to be able to squeak over 15k again for 60 mins but I'm not even worrying 14.8k at the moment.

Re: Anyone had any PBs recently?

Not a thread I find myself on other than to congratulate others. However, two of this months challenges are for very short sprints where I very seldom venture so after a couple of practice attempts and matching a PB for my 100m a couple of days ago and only falling short of my 1 min by 2m, I had ano...

Re: Beginners

Not an expert on recovery as I tend to "go for it" most rows (not good advice I know). For me it would be at a reduced max heartrate which may be difficult if you haven't got a heart rate monitor so the nearest alternative suggestion would be row at a stroke rate and pace you are very comfortable at...

A certain young lady appears to have landed on 1,000,000 for the seasons and as she is the shy, retiring type she's not going to be shouting her own name from the treetops - so from all of us who appreciate your efforts on this thread - THANK YOU..

Well done Peter - a nice total you have achieved (given how many OTW metres you row as well). Gold star awarded. =D> =D>
