Re: what training have free spirits been doing today?

Impressive session Jon, while the coach may not have been cruising, I think you kept the wheels attached if somewhat wobbly! Staying wholly in red zone for 16 min is a great testament to your determination. I have done a few rows where I have positively split the interval to record times for multipl...

Re: June CTC

Failed miserably on my first attempt. Not sure whether I "thought my way out of it", but tried this with 500 tactics but setting off 2S/500m slower. Despite the slower pace my breathing caught up with me about where it usually does in a 500, this is when the reduced oxygen from breathing o...

Not sure whether there is an update problem, but the metreboard I get is showing James Estes as the first MM FS with Dwayne 24k short!

Re: what training have free spirits been doing today?

Impressive second row back Jon, although I think you may have the wrong display setting as rests seem to be included in the above "elapsed" times. Such a strong finish when at 96% HRMax on interval 4 is particularly impressive.

Re: July CTC

THis is also one of the "Rowlympic" events so if done on or after 23/7 can count for both!

Re: New age group:new targets

Not sure what has happened to the Nonathlon, how can a WR score 918 points? I suspect that no data has been entered for the oldest age groups and so the curve is off. You are being robbed sir!

Re: The Pete Plan etc

Tried Pete's version of the 5-1k (1S/500m quicker for each with 1'/1000 rest between). Bailed early into 4th interval as convinced myself I had started too quickly. So took long break and restarted, initially to just do the 2k, but after slowing decided to finish out the 1k for completeness but with...

Re: New ctc site

I would vote for whichever is easier which I suspect is ignoring the incomplete boats from the site, but if it is possible, can the "results" be shown so that people's relative position can be determined and potential intra-team gains assessed?

Spider great training, Colin, good to see your keeping it up. Sleeping poorly so cut training Wednesday despite receiving HR strap, thought about CTC this morning but couldn't hit target pace in warm up so settled for a 12 x 30" r1' R30 strength session. Forgot to remove C-breeze, so DF went fr...

Re: The Pete Plan etc

Hard luck Spider, unfortunately if we don't push the envelope we don't make the leaps forward. I did the 4x2k as well today (I always choose tougher sessions when I haven't done them for a while as the targets are less onerous!), HR strap still several days away, so did blind. Last did this just ove...

Impressive improvement Spider. Mat, good to see you back in the saddle. My HR Monitor strap broke, why would they make part in corrodible metal :x . Ordered a replacement, rowed without HR Monitor see SB thread.

Re: Millionaire's Club - 2024/2025 season

Its no slam dunk that Dwayne will be first this year as James Estes has a healthy lead!

Do we need to replace the 23/4 thread with this one in the "Stickies"?

Re: May CTC

I've got to get past Jon first and don't expect that to happen any time soon! Jill, I don't think anyone can do an 8 min sprint (although there are plenty of rowers whose wash at cruise speed would be in danger of tipping me over!). if your not rowing much, I would recommend rowing through (perhaps ...
