Re: July ctc - 500m/2'30"r/400m/2'r/300m/1'30"r/200m/1'r/100m

Max, I hope you are still on the road to recovery? Had my third go at this last night with the aim of beating every rep from my last effort. Additionally I decided to attack the 500m a bit more. As I'm not a good sprinter the most effective way to gain time for me is on the longest interval. This is...

Had my second go last night which was better than attempt #1, but not good enough to catch Dave. Maybe doing them back to back was'nt the brightest idea...

After leaving it to the last possible day in June I decided to have an early go this time which was yesterday. Wasn't feeling great but thought "what the heck" and went for it:

Re: June ctc - 20 x 300m / 1'r

Marta, you can do both manually, entering it in your logbook and in the ctc table. And yes, it will count towards the June challenge (if you do it today).

Thanks for floating another boat!

Re: 2019 Mud Season Madness - a review

At the beginning of the challenge I couldn't imagine to make either the 5k or the 10k challenge. Therefore one day I rowed only 8.5k ("doesn't matter anyway"). Later in the month it turned out I would be able to complete 25 days of rowing so this one day <10k cost me the 10k challenge. But nevermind...
