Re: December ctc - 813m, standing start

I saw you needed a couple ladies' times, so I thought I would see if I could erg without pain yet. 4 weeks out from 3 fractured ribs and I was able to do short, fast strokes with little resistance without pain! Not a fast time, but it still counts :). Hopefully in a few more weeks I can return to a...

Re: Holiday Challenge

I finally scraped over the 100km mark but seem to be short of a snowman. Do I need to do anything else? With it being a certain time of year, the Snow Elves are a tad busy and so only go on Holiday Challenge Snowman duty every now and again. Just because it's you I have given them a prod and they h...

Re: December ctc - 813m, standing start

I eventually got around to having a go and I got confirmation of why I should avoid anaerobic activity. After I completed the row I bent over to put the cover on and I got ZAPPED by my defibrillator - I initially thought I had been electrocuted!! I think the combination of anaerobic exercise and th...

Two Weeks Remaining

I am going to start my monthly nagging early, given Christmas is almost upon us. Two weeks to go and 5 seats filled so far. Well done to all those who have logged an entry.

Indeed. But try as I might I can't get them in the "correct" order. I know how to do it in theory, but in practice...... #-o :evil:

I love the way you just decide to have a try and come in under 3 hours Claudius ! ^O^ ^O^

Great row. Very well done. It’s a low DF. Did you move it down for the FM or is that normal for you?

Re: Holiday Challenge

Well done Fred. 200k so early is pretty impressive. It looks like that also got you your 1 million metres for the season too.

I’ll get my 100k this week. Hoping to get double snowmen on the Meterboard this year.

Some good times on the board already =D> =D>

My row is written up on the PB forum post. 19:18.7 for me, so that's an adjusted time of 17:26.9 for you to chase Peter :fswink: :evil:

Re: Anyone had any PBs recently?

Thanks all. I fear I may have set an unnecessarily high bar for the IRL next month now #-o Well it had to be done. Today was a "hard" Pete Plan day and so it was also the day of my first 5k effort for IRL. A number of you commented that there looked to be an opportunity to improve on my r...

Re: Forum and Website Uprgrade this weekend

The upgrade is complete and everything should be back to normal. Please shout if that isn't the case.

This was a relatively minor update so there aren't any features that you should notice any change to.

The forum and website software needs a quick upgrade. I will take the site down for a while at some point over the weekend. Hopefully it shouldn't take too long to complete. [-o<

Re: Holiday Challenge

Thanks all for the comments. Sorry it has taken me a while to come back to this post. I'm used to long bike rides - the furthest I did was Liverpool - Grimsby - yes that really is an elapsed time over 12 hours. So I know what I can and can't tolerate when it comes to food and drinks.

Well done folks. We managed to end the month with a full set of 10 entries. This is a great achievement at both ends of the spectrum. Some of us are struggling with time and/or fitness at the moment and yet still managed to enter a result for the team. Others are flying along and helped to give us o...
