Re: Name that tune

Thanks Peter. I realise there’s a clue (probably a fairly significant one) in your last post, but it just doesn’t ring any bells. There was a song called “Making your mind up” by Bucks Fizz that was a Eurovision Song Contest winner back in the 80s, but those lyrics are definitely not in that song. T...

Re: Name that tune

"It's not often easy and not often kind"
Those lyrics are driving me out of my mind

I feel like I should know it, but it’s just not clicking.

Re: fall challenge - reminder

Lucky I saw this thread. I hadn't realised I had to actually push 'join the challenge" . Hopefully the usual meters added across a month, around 250,000 to 350,000.

Re: September ctc - 5k, standing start, unrestricted

Decided to do a 5k today. First row this month and my physio has told me that it's OK to row provided I take it very easy and don't put any undue strain on my back. I figured I'd be able to do somewhere around the 21 minute mark without stressing my back too much, but boy was I wrong! In order to ro...

Re: Name that tune

I had considered putting up the answer as Peter didn't specifically say that that was his guess. But I figured that would be robin' him of his chance to put one up and would be nothing to crow about.

Re: August ctc : 2020 in pieces - 4 x 505m with 2 minutes rest, and take the time of your slowest 505m interval

Having done only on session on the erg this month, I decided (against the advice of my physio) to have a go at this month's challenge today. Forgetting how unfit I am, I decided that 2:00 would be a reasonable target that I should be able to achieve without too much stress. I did the first interval ...

Re: Injuries.....:(

Had a visit with the physio this morning and he advised me not to row for a while. I'm still having a lot of lower back problems and he feels that erging will exacerbate the problems. I'm seeing him again in two weeks' time and will review the situation then.

Re: July ctc - 2112m

Having done practically no erging this month, I decided it was time to have a go at this month’s challenge. It was a slow decline into death, but I managed to finish the challenge in 8:55.6. Pretty depressing, but why worry?

Re: 2020 weight loss thread

As expected and as predicted by Jill, last week proved somewhat problematic from a weight loss perspective. Five nights away with hotel meals each day, including 5 days of fried breakfasts, took their toll. Lots of time spent driving as well, so not as much exercise as usual. Back in the red zone, u...
