Hip. Hip. Hooray! For our boy, Mr Lootsma … Who again … has rowed fast … and again … has rowed far … to reach his Second Million Metres for the season.

Tako - :D =D> x 2,000,000 👕👕

That’s excellent going, or, as you are a polylinguist, in Yorkshire, they would say, “ Tako, lad, that’s reet grand. " :fsbgrin: :fswink: 👍 :D ^O^ 8) =D>


And now next to arrive … we have Michael Smyth … who coming to us as a new member, has already rowed over Two Million Metres for the season.

Michael - :D =D> x 2,000,000 👕👕

Thank you for the addition of your metres - they are a whopping contribution and boost to the Team Affiliation Standings. 8) ^O^ =D>

Michael, welcome to Free Spirits. I do hope that being a member of the club will provide you with plenty of exercise, satisfaction and fun. Erg on.👍 8) :)

Thank you very much Jill!!
Not sure it is always fast, but happy to be able to keep my target of 7k a day on average since almost 2,5 years now :-)
Rowing for fitness & health!
Without others and competition I wouldn't, so thanks to all of you in the community for keeping me going! :fssmile:

Thank you Tako. :)


Hang on. :o What is this? :o Dwayne has somehow managed to evade my Meterboard Radar :shock: … because … using stealth … on the twelfth … he reached Eight Million Metres for the season. Obviously, it was very sneaky of him as my faultless vigilance skills are … faultless. :^o :lol: :wink:

Dwayne - :D =D> x 8,000,000 👕👕👕👕👕👕👕👕

Thank you again for the magnificent amount of metres that you have contributed towards the Team Affiliation Standings. ^O^ =D> 8)

Dwayne, my money is on you achieving Ten Million Metres for the season.👍💪 8) :)

I see that Paul Humphries ( he was 54 on the Meterboard ) has left Free Spirits. This must have happened sometime after I had checked out the MB earlier this morning. Yesterday, he had reached just over 1,000,000 metres for the season.

Best Wishes Paul.

Ian, I have been trying to think of some words of motivation, but after just reading your last post on the Meta-nonathlon thread, I’ve had an attack of the giggles.😹 I do hope that you didn’t have to sacrifice any undergarments in order to make the flag. :shock: :lol: :wink:

In no time all … Graham Paull … has reached One Million Metres for the season.

Graham - :D =D> x 1,000,000 👕

A very warm welcome to Free Spirits Graham, I do hope that being part of the club, will bring you great pleasure and satisfaction. :) A very warm welcome also, to all your lovely metres, which are a substantial boost to the Team Affiliation Standings. :D ^O^ =D> 8)



With energetic intent … Oliver Leeds … from the county of Kent … has reached One Million Metres for the season.

Oliver - :D =D> x 1,000,000 👕


Rob Brittin … from the Emerald Isle … has rowed … mile upon mile upon mile … to reach Two Million Metres for the season.

Rob - :D =D> x 2,000,000 👕👕

Oliver and Rob, many thanks to you also for your valuable contributions to the Team Affiliation Standings. :D =D> ^O^ 8)

It’s not only Oliver and Rob of course, who need to be praised for all the time, effort and sometimes, sheer determination that has gone into their erging. An extra special thank you to all club members who have been able to row this season. Your meterage has played a part ( it all adds up ) in keeping us in unassailable, second place on the The Team Affiliation Standings.💪 ^O^ =D> 8)

An extra special mention to those of you who are having to cope with illness, both mental and physical and injury, either long or short term. I do hope that you are making some progress ( Ian Bee, Juergen and at the moment a slightly wonky Plummy ). I know that for some of you, it's not easy when your motivation is at a very low ebb and you have to take things one day at a time. :)

As I only look occasionally at the Training Thread, would it be possible to move the Injuries Thread to the Main Forum?

Thanks, Jill. I try to make sure I listen to my body, but I have been known to overdo things in the past. Also, not really shrinking. To quote Sophia Loren, "Everything you see I owe to spaghetti."
Cheers,
Colin

Thank you Colin. :lol:

Before I shed the pounds in order to get back down to a healthy weight, I not only owed everything to spaghetti but quite a few other comestibles as well. :oops: To not quite quote the late, great Eric Morecambe, “ I had all the right curves … but not necessarily in all the right places. " :lol: :wink:



After leapfrogging over me ( and quite a few others ) … and landing on twenty three … please give a well deserved thank you, to our newest Free Spirit, Eric Anderson, who reached One Million Metres for the season on January 12th.

Eric - :D =D> x 1,000,000 👕

A huge “ Hello “ from everyone and thank you for the benefit of your myriad metres, they are a very beneficial addition to the Team Affiliation Standings. =D> ^O^ 8)

Eric, I do hope that you will enjoy being a member of the club.👍 :)

Congratulations John - your 18,560,774 lifetime metres are as impressive as your C2 membership of nineteen years.👍 =D> ^O^ 8)


My language skills are such … that I only know two words of Dutch … :fsbgrin: :fswink: and they are … Fred and Koene. However, at least that allows me to tell you all, that Fred Koene has reached One Million Metres for the season.

Fred - :D =D> x 1,000,000 👕

Great going Fred, especially as you have attained your 1 million target for the season with plenty of time to spare.👍 =D> ^O^ 8)


The Metreboard Radar is flickering … which tells me that young Ian Pickering has reached One Million Metres for the season.

That’s a marvellous achievement, IIse - I think your profile comments are more eloquent … and I quote, “ Row row row that boat! “ .👍 ^O^ =D> 8)


Tremendous applause for Dwayne … who I’m sure is all set to gain … his Ten Million Metre Medal … Because … he has now reached Nine Million Metres for the season.

Dwayne - =D> ^O^ x 9,000,000 👕👕👕👕👕👕👕👕👕

Another awe-inspiring effort Dwayne.💪👍 =D> ^O^ 8)


Thank you so much, John, Fred, Ian, IIse and Dwayne for the munificent amount of metres that you have contributed towards the Team Affiliation Standings. ^O^ ^O^ ^O^ ^O^ ^O^ =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> 8)
