The more boats we float the better!

I'm not particularly shy about encouraging people to use the rowing machines in the gym (with heavy emphasis on do as I say, not necessarily as I do).

Hopefully, a few will get engaged with the challenges and help float a few more boats in due course. I know I've found both the forum and the CTC incredibly helpful and supportive in improving

I had to leave my rower at our florida house and I have been focusing on my Triathlon training, but I will try to get to gym by this weekend in an attempt to enter a score for this month's CTC to float another boat. Haven't rowed in a month, so it isn't going to be fast, but I will try :).

Thanks, Janet, for getting another boat on water :!: :fssmile:

In the weekend did 20:52.4, and yesterday improved further to 20:41.0. Might have another go at this... :fssmile:

Liefcat, it wasn't pretty, that's for sure! Tackling that CTC after not rowing much at all for a couple of months was a challenge. Pace was all over the board and HR was through the roof, but I finished it :).

I've had a few dry runs of this one with fewer intervals so I had half a plan to try & stick to under 1:34/500 avg pace for each & see how things went. At least the first rep wasn't too bad :evil: Unusually for me, with heart rate too as I've reincarnated my old chest belt (mostly for some HRV playing about). 10 years ago my max was 183 so it might be that I've lost 17 bpm on that these days.

Anything that unpleasant must be brilliant training, surely ? Well done to everyone who has kept going through the 15th rep of utter despair.
