Re: Indoor Rowers League 2017 / 2018

Yes, one (IRC_TITLE) is for all of us free spirits, and the other one (8on8 team name) is for this 10 people team willing to do all the rows of the season. Ok. Thanks. I added my name back to the (IRC_TITLE), but not the (8on8 team name). It looks like we have 9 times entered for the 4', is that ri...

Re: Indoor Rowers League 2017 / 2018

Hey zootMutant, Why did you remove yourself from the Free Spirits IRC in IRC_TITLE? Or even better, just row these 4' and join the 8on8, then we would have a full crew including the 2 Substitutes. I also received a PM from Peter. Very good to hear from you both! I was not planning on competing in t...

So I got a reply from Sebastien. The list is carried over from the last season. In order to leave the list one has to unselect Free Spirits under TEAM_NAME and another team member needs to select Free Spirits under TEAM_NAME. Rodger, I wouldn't want you to leave the list, I'm only concerned about m...

Still making steady progress -- only 10 more pounds to go! (4.5 kg) 8) I never would have believed it, but for me it seems like food choices are much more important than exercise when it comes to weight loss. Choose the right foods and I make steady progress... choose the wrong foods and I struggle....
