Hello, I'm adding this message to a few of the most popular threads in the hope that as many people see it as possible. Concept2 have launched a new spring challenge, the Spring Vlll Series. It's easy to get involved if you want to. Just row 6k by 12th April and log your time in your Concept2 logbook. Our Captain Stan will then select our boats. Details are below and you can follow progress on the Spring Vlll thread. If you're reading this hopefully you'll want to join in. It would ge great to have both experienced and newer rowers involved.

Thank you David.

Sad that it took a world epidemic to get me to dust off the truth machine.

When I row now, I cant even see my old self in the distance. I can only assume I used to cheat somehow because those pb's are just not possible for me :o

I know how you feel. Other than a few brief false starts, didn't row from April 2015 for 3 years. My first rows were 4ks at only a slightly faster pace than I did my 111,111M at. But after a few months on the Pete Plan, managed 10k faster than my Marathon PB. Unfortunately then started a new job with 4 hours a day commuting so stopped. In December started again and am now a couple of seconds/500M faster than I was when I stopped. I know I am unlikely to see the times I could do in 2011 again, but nolonger embarassed about my pace.

Good to see you back.
