Thanks for the welcome. Looking forward to being part of the club and taking part in challenges. I ride and run as my main sports but hope to do a lot more indoor rowing this coming year :-)

Well a returning member. Must be seven or eight years since I last posted. The Concept 2 has been collecting dust in the garage for some years as I had problems witt both knees. Have decided to return to the fold and try strengthening the knees and then seeing how close I can come to the workouts in my early sixties now I am retired and approaching 69. I can see a few familiar names on the forum, so encouragement please as I try to get back into the fold.

Welcome back Jamie! It's great to hear from one of our original members from 2006. You joined about a week before me.

I hope the comeback goes well. I've been relatively inactive over the last year or so and maybe we can spur each other on to get back into the groove.

Good morning all.

I think I qualify as a returning member.

I joined (just looked it up) 4th July 2006, courtesy of Gregor, and was very active indeed for a decade. Then I sort of fell out of live with the rower, sold my Model D to a friend and bought a bike.

Now though, I have bought a new model D on Fleabay (It's done less than 90 minutes work since December 2016) and had my first session on it last night.

That was quite depressing in terms of time but things can only get better.

Looking forward to renewing some friendships and seeing how some threads I started are getting along (or not).

Welcome back Graham! I was also recruited by Gregor and I'll bet your current times aren't anywhere as flow as mine. But I've been erging more regularly of late and it will be good to have some company on the road back to fitness.
