Re: 12h Ergmarathon

You should have gone out on the water for a quick 10k given it was so smooth out there.

Well done on the fundraising and 12hr row. =D> =D>

Re: Rowlympic Challenge

Finally managed to get through a 10k last night to complete the set for this. Generally, I'm done in at 20~25 mins and lose the will to continue after that but having done 7 of the 8 events I didn't want to bail on the last 5k or so (knowing I can get to 5k - ish reasonably ok). It took me 43 minute...

Re: July CTC - 5k/2k 7min rest, 1 at 20SPM

Some great performances already this month - well done to all =D> =D> I'm enjoying the debate on which way to approach this one - for me I can't imagine doing a good 5k after a low rate 2k :shock: So, I had a go last night and somewhat overcooked the 5k from the start - going in at sub 1:50 pace an...

Interested to read about all your efforts BRAVO EVERYONE my lack of speed is why I don't join you I don't want to sink a boat...see weight loss discussions on the other thread Any lack of speed is of little consequence.

Re: Injuries.....:(

Finally had my ultrasound scan today on my right shoulder. The good news is - no ligament damage. There's a little bit of bursitis but essentially the clever man with a cravat said it's a "frozen shoulder" and needs physiotherapy - but "will come back". So, I'm not going under th...

IIRC I got a badge pin on reaching 35 mill, and t-shirts for 5,10,15 and 20 mill I think. Dave - I thought you got your 40 million a while ago - you must still be ahead of me?

Re: July CTC - 5k/2k 7min rest, 1 at 20SPM

My thinking is to do the 2k @ 20spm as the overall time loss will be less than trying to do a 5k @ 20spm. I'd do the 2k first as I think my legs would actually appreciate the rate increase for the later 5k where you can adjust your rate on a whim depending how you feel.

As I only had you recorded for 4 million I've added a whole 2 stars - you're well worth it for your efforts over the last 12 months =D> =D>

Re: Projections in Meterboard

I like it Jon. As you say, "days active" can be bang on accurate for some like me who upload metres on the day but for others it only means "how many times did I upload metres?" It's a better tool now in my opinion.
