Re: Anyone had any PBs recently?

Beating a six year old PB must feel great, well done Jon! =D>

The way you described your row makes it look very easy, so I'm very confident you will set another PB next month :fswink:

Re: Anyone had any SEASON's bests recently?

I had a bone to pick with my 30 minutes. SB was 7762m / 1:55.9 which had set in the october ctc. But a certain Mr. Wolfmiester had beaten me in this ctc with a very good 7788m. Yesterday I decided to try again and set myself three goals: bronze: beat my old SB (7762m) silver: beat Steve (7788m) :D g...

Re: Meta-nonathlon 2020-2021

The update dates you found are correct: Nov 6th: 10k Nov 9th: 60 mins Nov 12th: 6k I‘m not sure about the exact time of day but it was definetely in the evening, so they should be correct. On a positive note, I just updated my nonathlon score for 30 mins. It‘s now 876 (was 870) and the metanonathlon...

Re: Meta-nonathlon 2020-2021

Thanks for fixing this Jon, although we still do not completely know what the problem was/is. Maybe the analyser only accepts your command to update :D

The 500m were pure coincidence. I updated my hour yesterday with the same (non) effect but didn‘t want to bother you again.

Re: Anyone had any SEASON's bests recently?

Great 2k there Pete, going sub7 must have been a great feeling (after the recovery of course :D ). 30 minutes next for an new SB is it? Dave, can you read my mind? :shock: I had the intention of testing my 30 minutes next and tried to do so two days ago. Unfortunately I had to quit half way through....

Re: 2020 weight loss thread

Keep going Colin, now that your chest is clear again and you can start to exercise you should be good for some noticeable weight loss.

Paul, that's an amazing weight loss you have achieved so far, 13 kilos in two months! :shock: Your wife must be (even more than before) excited! :D

Re: Meta-nonathlon 2020-2021

Jon, I seem to have the same problem that Iain had, interestingly also with the 500m, if that helps tracking down the problem: Jon, after 5 days, my Meta hasn't been updated for my improved 500. WOrked in the Nonathlon analyser 'though. Is there something we have to do to update it? I updated my 500...

Re: Anyone had any SEASON's bests recently?

Thanks Jon and Kevin :fswink: Yesterday I got the impression that my 6k SB (23:39.7 / 1:58.3) was kind of weak :shock: I had managed to row the 6344m for the IRL at 1:57.7 pace, so I ought to be able to go faster than that on a 6k :idea: But how fast exactly? There was of course only one way to find...

Re: Anyone had any SEASON's bests recently?

I'd like to resurrect this thread because I set a new SB for the 10k last night :D Current SB was a 39:54.8 / 1:59.7 from October 17th. I felt it was time to have a closer look at this distance again. Plan was to start out around 1:59 pace for the first 2k and than get gradually quicker. This is how...

Jill, please keep taking care of this thread. I very much like your writing style, although it’s a bit of a challenge for me as a non native speaker. But almost every time I‘m reading your comments I learn new words / phrases / idioms and that‘s good.

Re: Indoor Rowers League 20/21

Good job Dave for seeing it through :fswink: Better luck next time! Kevin, I wonder how fast you can go on a full out attempt? 23:30 I reckon. I had my first go at this last night: Unbenannt.JPG I was pleasantly surprised that I was only 10.3 seconds slower than my fastest attempt last season. Hopef...
