Re: Introduce yourself

Welcome, Deb! I have had both ACL's replaced in my knees, but used hamstrings vs. patella for repairs. Fortunately I am able to row, run, ski, etc without any lingering effects other than wearing a brace on one knee when I ski. Good for you to keep looking for an exercise that works for your limitat...

Re: Madness 2019!

Just catching up on recent posts. We are still out in Colorado skiing. It has been an epic week...6 ft of snow this week! Avalanches everywhere closing the roads, but our friends' house is well situated and we have been able to avoid the road closures and still get out skiing 5 days so far and I swa...

Re: Introduce yourself

Welcome Abaerwaldt! My, what a story you have. So inspired that you still find time for rowing with all you have been through. I will check out your facebook page :).

Re: February Follies 2019

Wow...great job on the half marathon, Occowboy! I can't imagine rowing that distance at this point...maybe some day. Marta, thanks for the response. I had started BPP, but we have been traveling and will be again next week, so I am having trouble sticking to a routine for any of my workouts and now ...

Re: February Follies 2019

Welcome back to the forum, Marta. I was curious if you could tell me how you manage such great times on the CTC's as I believe you said you were a beginner rower. I did notice you are tall, so perhaps that helps, but any other tricks you could pass on? What drag do you normally have rower set at, fo...

Re: Holly's journey

Hi Holly, Great progress so far! Mentally I find it a bit easier to get more meters in if I use intervals...for example 1000 meters with 2 min rest between intervals. I can do 4 intervals much easier than just rowing 4000 straight meters. Something you might want to try as you increase up to the 500...

Re: February Follies 2019

Alas, I have made a liar out of myself and failed the valentines challenge. I knew I should have finished the row before my brother arrived for a stay with us. Got chatting after dinner and now a) I am too tired (rowed 4000+, jogged and paddleboarded today) and b) hubby is sleeping and rower is in o...

Re: February Follies 2019

Hi ladies, Jill, I finished the Carole row for today, so we are boat 1 :). I will definitely complete the 10,000 today throughout the course of the day. Probably nice and easy though...I went out a bit fast on the 1402 row! I won't be able to do the mud challenge as we will be out west skiing from m...

Re: February Follies 2019

Had a tough time with jet lag and minor virus when I got back, so finally got back on rower today. 4000 down...10,000 to go before midnight tomorrow for valentines challenge. Trying to get back on track with my running and swimming as well. Amazing how a 3 week break can feel like starting over even...

Re: January Challenge(s) 2019

Great job on your race, Sharky! I have biked 25 miles each of the last 2 days, here in Thailand. We had a rough trip here...60 hrs of travel, including a 28 hr layover in Detroit due to a combination of medical emergency diversion back to airport, airport closing for bad weather, no hotels available...

Re: January Challenge(s) 2019

Jill, you sound like me re: triathlons. I was so looking forward to being in the 60-69 this year and then I signed up and they apparently have switched from your age at the end of the calendar year to your age at time of race, so I have to wait another year for the older, less competitive group. Hop...
