CTC January challenge final call - lightweight needed

Postby Slothful1 » January 29th, 2008, 4:55 pm

The RowPro Rowers team has already floated 1 boat in the CTC, and is missing a lightweight to get boat 2 in.

Any lightweights (male or female) willing to do 250m for the team before the end of January? No time too slow!

See http://c2ctc.com for more details.

Cheers

I did a few 250s this morning. Nothing special: 49.5, 48.8, 48.2, 2:26.8 :) and 47.8.

I am a lightweight but don't use RowPro. If you want me, I'll sign up.

Didn't plan on doing this since my knee is still a bit off and I probably am under 100K total for the last 2.5 months but I felt OK after doing a 3K warm up and moderate 5k. So I figured I'd help out a boat. Was going to do another 5K but figured I try the CTC. First two at a drag factor of 115, 3nd at 130, 4th and 5th at 144. The fourth also involved running after one of my dogs who decided to wake up the neighborhood.

Probably not my choice to make, but let's make a snap decision to grant guest membership seeing the month is ending soon. Welcome on board!

If the true decision makers disagree, I'll probably be joining you in the Independents next month. :lol:

Welcome on board - it is all about taking part. RowPro is the cream on the cake giving the opportunity to row 'Live' against/with someone the other side of the world.

Just signed on and to my surprise I ended up on RowPro Rowers I, team in 35th place.

I may give the 250 another shot tomorrow if I can get on the machine. I should be able to get it down by at least another half second without too much trouble. That would bring the team up a couple of places. I'll see how my knee feels tomorrow.


It would be nice to be able to see a list of times for each of four categories

Hey it is great we filled a second boat. Rowpro has been totally lame as a team, and many rowers on other teams use rowpro online, so we are a big tent generally. So, welcome aboard [if you have a C2 at home, you really should get rowpro too].

Plus, no one makes these decisions. Pam is our defacto leader and January team captain, but I dont' think she has noticed the CTC yet. Next up is the 7777 which will be a fun race online in a fairly popular distance range for online rows. I do lots of 8ks, so that will feel very familar.

I have a C2 at home but I row either in my garage when it is raining or more often outside. My wireless network is not that reliable, so I'm sure I would lose the connection often. The erg is just something to stay in shape with, I'm more interested in OTW rowing and cycling.

Did a 7777 this morning.
30:12.2. All the splits (I set if for 1500m) were at 24 spm except for one at 23, the last one which was 25, and the final 277 at 27. All splits within 1 second of each other except for the final 1777 which was a bit faster. At 5K I was at 19:28. Felt like work but certainly not an all out effort. Warm up was 2x1500, which is a bit short for a serious effort. It was a bit cool and foggy and done first thing in the morning with no food except a Clif bar.

It puts me on the first row pro team., and the team in 21st place. Knocking off the 12.2 seconds for a 30:00 shouldn't be too hard--just a more serious warm up, a little warmer and less humid conditions and a bit more suffering. I probably won't do another until I do the week 7 HM.
