So I guess you will have another go at this before the month is over? Forcing me to do the same ;-)
Not sure if I have any more in the tank but will try next weekend on fresh legs but after a weeks holiday :fssmile:

I would like to welcome (and thank) Amber Pierce and Jess Milborne to the CTC on behalf of Free Spirits with stellar efforts. They won't be able to row for us on every challenge as it has to suit their OTW training - but the 6 x 1 was a very good fit for them.

Please join me in appreciating their first efforts for the team =D> =D> ^O^ ^O^

Yeah, just saw those great contributions pushing the boats higher up the ranks as well! Thanks to both!! Now we have the unusual situation that Roger is joined by 3 ladies in boat VI! Maybe it will be 4 when Barbara enters her effort :-)

Nice effort Ralf!
Looking at the last interval I guess you could have started a bit faster. Maybe have another go ?! ;-)

Turns out my step-mother-in law's grand daughter rows for her university and had no idea of the existence of virtual teams. We met at a recent family party (step mother in law's 80th) and she was so happy to find someone else who could talk about rowing for hours!! :D

I told her all about the team and the CTC and said she'd do any that her training allowed and surprisingly got her friend to put in a time for us too! I might even be getting he mum to row for us as she's pretty competitive as well. They are Isle of Wight based like our new man Swinny.

Cool, I have been chatting with Paul (hopefully getting together this weekend) and he mentioned these CTC's. I will do them as well and will set myself up on it this weekend. We could have a nice little group of virtual rowers on the island at this rate. I put a shout out on Strava for more rowers among my old cycling friends but no one does it.

:fsbgrin: I'm so glad to welcome the new girls - It was getting a bit silly that my time (middle aged, unfit, asthmatic) was keeping me in boat 1! The new faster times are much more in keeping with the rest of the crews in B1 and B2.

You're like me Jane - feeling the effects of age a little. These young upstarts have all the advantages and don't need three days of lying down in a darkened room with tea and biscuits after an all out erg session. :shock:

Lots of great efforts! =D>

I'm following a very structured and rigorous crossfit training plan that includes very little rowing. In the best shape of my life and doing things I never imagined doing at almost 49 but a bit specific rowing fitness has definitely been lost in the process.

Loving the enthusiasm on this one - great work all. This is probably a textbook example of how not to pace this one ! I put the drag up to ~ 130 (I usually use ~ 103 for everything) & it really felt tough by the end. I also completely messed up a rolling start on #6 #-o & should have been good for another 1:33.? pace I think.

I'm not going to post this one on the CTC site just yet as I'm not quite back at lwt yet (following 2 weeks of mouse related Florida family fun :oops: ) but I should be good to post a lwt result next week, hopefully with a less ridiculous 1st interval leading to a more evenly paced effort ! Worst case scenario, I'll still have this to post as a hwt before the end of the month.

That is awesome! But I really hope the diet goes well or else I have no hope of boat 2. HD'd today after interval 4 :cry:. Maybe one more attempt before the end of play.

Excited to see new female entries. Tell em thanks Dave! And nicely done to the regulars as well!

I did a typical klutz maneuver 2 weeks ago and fell of a curb 3 days before leaving for an OTW race event. :( Luckily no broken bones, just bruises and an "avulsion fracture" on the right side of my right foot. With an orthopedic Dr's OK, I went ahead and raced not to mention 4-5 days of getting around the race venue. Maybe not the wisest choice, but will find out at a follow up ortho appt on Tuesday.

Meanwhile I'll put in a ctc score and see if I'm up for another before the month changes to - wow - September!

Cheers

Great to see your post Barbara as I have to admit that I have been wondering about how you were doing when I saw the news about the wildest fires in CA.
Hope you will recover well from you injury, and good luck with your second attempt!

I second Max here (although Ian and Dave might have a different view), good luck with the diet ;-)

Max, good luck if you give it a second try, but please give me at least one day to respond ;-)

Thanks for your effort Barbara, despite that nasty injury. Get well soon and yes, it's almost September :shock: Christmas presents bought and wrapped? :D

I have been avoiding the erg recently due to the ridiculously hot weather here with ambient temperature over 35 centigrades. Instead I took advantage of the summer weather and went rowing otw or mountain hiking. But as August is coming to an end it was high time to put in at least a score, which I did last week and of course was a shame compared to the brilliant efforts posted by Free Spirits here and on the ctc page:

Wasn't sure at all how to pace this one so thought a 1:45 pace should be ok. It turned that there was a bit left towards the end but I still ended up 66m behind Wolfie and 16m behind Dave :oops: Will try to do better in the next couple of days.

Tako, Happy with boat 2 and I should really get back to PP sessions. So no plans to have another go. That will only change if Guy posts his hwt time.

lwt 8)

Doesn't get any easier does it ?! First rep was easy(ish), had an ergistential crisis in #4 & couldn't feel my legs by the end. 5 metres further than my hwt score but I felt every one of them.

Well done everyone who has done this one, it's pretty tough !
