Not enough!! I think the error was down to not making sure my calculator had all 4 numbers entered per total and so lost approx 5~6k twice. That appears to be the measure of the error. Oddly, even I thought it was low as 26 x 6k ish should never have been near 141k - but I was just too tired to care/check properly.

David, my brother Douglas, was 37 when he died from cancer - not a brain tumour, but that's irrelevant, it kills a lot of people, many before they were allowed their 3 score years and ten.

You put yourself through plenty of discomfort in order to raise funds for future cancer research. A heartfelt thank you. xxx

Have a few people from the top dropped out? I jumped from 17 to 15 last night without rowing any further distance...

What has happened to all of yesterday's metres on the Metreboard? The weekly totals look to have been reduced accordingly but seemingly not the annual totals.

My entries start looking funny as well, but I guess that is mainly due to the fact that I had to delete several Concept2 log entries that some other RowPro user seems to upload with my RowersID.
For each day where I delete an entry I get a very high value. Looks like I rowed over 1 million meters this week ;-)
Maybe Thomas can add some lines of code to catch this scenario?
And maybe adding the latest challenge icons?
The meterboard is great! My thanks and compliments to all involved! Great job!!
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:

Paul, are you still struggling with your motivation and shoulder problems?

I've had an idea for a while now but have been reluctant to suggest it... Then today I thought, " What the heck, Paul can only say no. "

I'll be back later but in the meantime, as everywhere will be gearing up for the pantomime season, here's something to be going on with:

Audience: Look out Paul! Jill's behind you!

You: Oh no she isn't!

Audience: Oh yes she is! :fsbgrin: :fswink:

Hi Jill

I was at my physio today and he told me to do 15 minutes gentle erging for 3 days, starting tomorrow. Being the good, obedient boy that I am, I shall follow his instructions to the letter!

This probably means that you will be a long way ahead of me in three days time, but if that's the worst thing that happens to me this week, I'll consider it a relatively good week. :lol:

That's good news Paul and if you do make the effort to follow your physio's wise advice ... that's even better. Let's leave it at that. :)

Hi all,
New member here just getting started. I confirmed my C2 logbook is linked to Free Spirits - and my challenge meters are logging. But, I don't appear on the meterboard. Just checking to see if I need to do anything. I have logged 5 workouts since sign up.
Thanks and looking forward to joining the group!

Matt did you figure this out? Did you add Free Spirits as a Training Partner via C2, in addition to affiliating for the Jan team challenge? If I recall correctly it's the training partner that connects to the Meterboard, but I'm not 100% sure.

Welcome!

Welcome, Matt!
The trick is to set your affiliation in the C2 logbook to Free Spirits. You can find this as a tab under your user profile.

Yes, looks like he's jumped ship to Fitness Matters.

Has someone left the team around position 13~14 as everyone below that seems to have jumped a place?

I think it might be Patrick Leuthard? Paul mentioned him along with Guy Blackburn, as reaching 1,000,000 metres for the season on August 10th.

Apologies to Patrick if I am mistaken.

Mr Bee - are you trying to displace me from my hard earned position on the Meterboard?? Do you think I didn't notice you piling on the extra metres...? :twisted:

Only one true hm in there - a pb yesterday. Otherwise, just longer random pieces or Pete plan sessions. Much respect for your dedication.

Did we lose our top scoreer for the meterboard (whoever he was)? Plenty of green arrows on the meterboard?
