Re: Forum Flyers

Took on the CTC this morning because in the past I've sometimes found that if I wait until later in the month when I might be in a better state of fitness something unforseen crops up and I miss it altogether. Better a slow score than no score. Also I figured I'd get Boat 1 off the dock, but when I ...

Re: Forum Flyers

How does this Nonathon Team thing work? When I click on Teams, on the left, it tells me that I'm not on a team and offers to let me create one. Go to rankings, top of sheet select filter. Click on filter by team box and click on forum flyers. Then click filter button, bottom left. Should them come ...

Re: Forum Flyers

Morning, Team of 9 on the nonathlon now, more the merrier and yes it is good that you are comparing like with like, although if you are lightwieght and old, you are more likely to be near the top :) Five boats a float, I reckon we could hit 6 which would be good for what is a tough challenge. Watch...

Re: Forum Flyers

Over half the month gone and haven't had a chance to think about doing the challenge again. Hopefully shorter sharper ones next month. Allan I've thought about it but haven't gotten any further than that. Still planning to try improving on my modest score, but spending a lot of time in boats instea...

Re: Recovery after exercise?

All good advice. Especially chasing the ego satisfying pace (guilty). Another thing to consider is that Recovery isn't only the amount of time between workouts. It's also the amount of sleep and proper nutrition. The better that you attend to those factors as well, the better the recovery. Partying ...

Re: Forum Flyers

OK, so I did the June CTC this morning but I didn't like it. Maybe because I picked the most humid day of the year so far and got drenched in sweat early and often. That 2' rest between the 2nd and 3rd piece seemed like no rest at all. I'll probably do another before the month is over but don't expe...

Re: Forum Flyers

Posted a time for the c2ctc. Wow man, I hardly ever do a 1k effort. It felt like I nearly died 3 times during the effort. I was 4 seconds off my PR on a 1k but I am very happy with that. 1014m as a result. Great score! Only two more rowers of any kind to fill Boat VII. Male or female, lightweight o...

Re: It's never like this!

I've only been OTW for a couple of years now but have come to consider flat water to one of the great joys in life. May you have many more such days in the near future.

The longest I have done in one sitting is a 3x3000m.
So you're 90% of the way to doing 6 miles.
I've got confidence in you Anna. You can do this!

Re: Forum Flyers

So I have been rowing without foot straps since Dec or so, and forgot to use them on any of my timed rows since then. I have been a little frustrated with feeling like my sprint times have not improved in a few months, when I came to that realization about the straps last week. Whoops! Redid the CT...

Re: Forum Flyers

Hi all Regularly-absent captain (for those who didn't know) reporting in for my "monthly" check in with the team. Welcome to the new faces, and it looks like there have been some lively discussions going while I was gone. Also some great efforts in the team challenges and CTCs. Thanks Chris for kee...

Re: Difference between normal 30' v 30' 20SPM PB

can someone tell me why people like rowing at 20 spm? It is so slow and awkward for me. Don't like it at all, it's extremely hard work. The only consolation is that there's plenty of time to rest between strokes; and of course the boat goes almost as fast as when racing. Example :wink: https://m.yo...
