Re: 7.43 2km row (21yo male “never” rowed before)

The ergometric rowing machine as seasonal training simuiator for a much older sport is approximately 40 yrs old—roughly twice the age of our young enthusiast—and to this day not widely available in public gyms or private homes, Most of us have a casual, hands on introduction to round ball, pointy ba...

Splits were 3m 15.6/3m 14.4 and 3m 9.6
Negative split and big bump on 3rd. Clearly not full gas.

Trying to get back to regular sessions for Dog Days challenge but the new ED for PM5 is buggy as a picnic! Sometimes the only way forward is retro.

Re: Forum Flyers

Was a little worried that I had dropped the ball when I saw Jack's suggestion that I could write it up and send it to Dave - but then I saw that Dave had posted it on the CTC forum so we are good to go. If it turns out to be a horrible challenge for us, you can all throw virtual rotten tomatoes at ...

Re: Forum Flyers

Hey Marc. I thought it was ‘cheaper by the dozen’. Why did you stop at 3? Still, grandkids and additional RBM may give you a shot at clan Calonius. :idea:

Re: Ankle arthritis

Appears you want the teeter totter foot stretcher for a scull not an erg? Or maybe both? The Alden ocean shells had that design on their Indestructible (but absurdly heavy) unitized Oarmaster (rigger/slide/footstetcher). A decent backyard mechanic should be able to knock up an addon bracket/axle/to ...

Followup on our eleventh hour decision: Checked Forum Flyers Community @ Face Book for challenge posts. No life signs after 29 June.

Re: Forum Flyers

I assume someone has to take a decision here. I vote for a non-ranking piece. The crazy 8s. Or the mean 2k-100m FF has a club president, no additional officers. Any member can volunteer to: 1) request a tally of suggestions/votes from the Facebook cousins, 2) declare a quorum of interested parties ...

Re: Ranking comparison

So when you look at that, you should only accept the "Race" results in the rankings and forget the rest. Timely turn away from previous solipsistic special pleading and right on point.👍 Although having nothing to do with telephone pole sprints in which only she who comes first admits to racing, the...
