Might even be out of reach for me already, and I've picked up a shoulder strain from sweep rowing at the weekend (obviously not doing it right!) so will be a while before a proper attempt.
That'a bummer Steve, what happened? Maybe you should try sculling instead (more symmetrical)? I wish you a speedy recovery, I'm missing our competition :D

Plenty of room for improvement before the end of the month, but at least I got another boat afloat :)
Thanks Janet for floating another boat :fswink:

Great effort by the team so far! 3 boats floating!!

Had my second attempt today as I saw a scheduled 30min in RowPro with one of the usual suspects who also wanted to go >7900m. So I had a nice pacemaker :-)
Felt like HD already after 10min but kept fighting and ended at 7907, which is around 100m less than my SB and 152 behind PB.
So hopefully more to come, after all it is Friday night after a tough week ;-)

Great weekend to you all! Especially to those at BRIC!!
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:

Inspiring piece Tako ImageImage

I found one handful of the extra metres I thought possible from my first attempt at this.

Very nice row Tako going plus 7900m. Are you planning to attack the8k mark soon?

Well done on your improvement Ian, that's two PBs within one week, isn't it?

Thanks Grobi, and yes it is 😊 Jon is still safe for the nonathon though.

Well done to everyone who got around this one this month :!: =D> =D>

Back to more endurance type of challenge - did 7321m. Some three weeks ago I did a 5k a little faster - so feels quite in the comfort zone... Might have another go or two... :fssmile:

Some impressive results from the team already =D> =D> Good luck everybody with setting new season's and personal bests!

I decided to give it a go today, starting conservatively because I was afraid of giving up halfway into the row. It went better than expected though, and I was able to speed up a bit towards the end. I ended up with 7341m, only 3m shy of my SB (which I hadn't checked beforehand because I didn't expect to get near it #-o).
Today's row was fuelled by some drop scones for breakfast, still need to see what happens with doughnut power :fsbgrin:

I'm liking the sound of doughnut power - that could become a "thing!". Nice 30 Jan.
