Re: Cross Team Challenge - Discussion Thread

best of luck Rod with your new challenges Thank you Lindsay that's kind of you to say, it's gone pretty well so far and I'm enjoying it. There's less ''blasting away'' than I used to do, more a gradual build up with a good base being worked on at the moment so hopefully no more ''burn out'' which I...

Re: Cross Team Challenge - Discussion Thread

Wow - Rod Chinn has "defected" from Sub7 to MAD - there must be a back story to that!! Ouch saw that to. Sort of Brexit inside the uk :D He's created a new ID "Rod Chinn." so I've editted that to "Rod Chinn (MAD)". The defection is probably documented on the Faceborgs website. Thank you for the int...

Re: Cross Team Challenge - Discussion Thread

Curious, do we know what the July challenge will be yet? Even more curiously I was just about to post that same question. If DLC Gidea Park don't shout out by Sunday it will be a straight simple unrestricted 2K. On the 13th of June Joe Keating posted this on the CTC fb page; ''DLC Gidea Park have l...

Re: Protein shakes?

Protein shakes do not have any special inherent muscle recovery properties of their own. Assuming you eat a balanced diet with enough protein from actual food then there is no need, you will already be eating enough for recovery, save your money. Consuming extra protein does not affect recovery eit...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Well done Susan. Completing yet another HM is quite an achievement in itself never mind the time which will no doubt improve further this season. ..and just seen your and Carol's new World Record Rod. Wooohooo! Much as I love 500 intervals...the idea of doing them for nearly 7 hours does not appeal...

Small world, I live in East Sussex (in a small village near Uckfield)
You're not wrong. I grew up in Buxted and used to play pub cricket from the New Inn in Hadlow Down.
Ha, ha...I cycled through Buxted this morning...I live 'next door' in High Hurstwood!

This is still a fair way short of my best which I did last September and set a British 60-69 Lwt record with 1:53.3 pace (15,...
