Re: TimbukTOO Team Room

Managed a 4,500m row, followed by a 2K & 1K. Was under 20 minutes for the 4,500, so I'm happy. I started back with doing 2K/ 1,500m/ 1K/ 500m = 5K, so being able to do 4,500m without excessive wheezing (my lungs still feel bruised from the COVID-19) is satisfying. Sounds good. Keep it up, and keep ...

Re: Zero days counted in average in LogBook

Sorry to bother anyone, but was wondering if there is a fix or adjustment for the start date of the yearly totals. I'm not trying to be uber competitive, well, maybe a little, but i received my C2 Model D on the 7th of May and have been rowing for an hour every day since the next day, May 8. I alwa...

I had hastily sketched out a plan this morning to have a go at 50k during the challenge window having previously given up on the idea of a FM due to lack of training.
You realize that an FM is shorter than a 50 k?

Congratulations on finishing the 50 k!

Re: New Personal Best! Brag About That New Pb!

Good Day, First time is always a PB. 100k at 2:14.8/500 or 7 hours 29 mins 15 secs. I am extremely proud of this and the people that supported me. It is worth it, it is not easy. It is not 10x10,000 and drinking water destroys your average. With breaks, I had to keep about a 2:12 is pace most of th...

Re: Burnout

I find myself in a bit of a slump. I think it's burnout. :cry: During the winter months and the Covid-19 seclusion I have been rowing at least 5 days a week, whereas during the Spring and Summer months I'm usually able to mix it up with some walking in the city and yoga classes. I would usually get...

Re: New Personal Best! Brag About That New Pb!

https://i.postimg.cc/hfKNXgXG/IMG-20200511-121422.jpg You know when you're suited to long distances when you have a 50k PB to try and beat, and I think this is just over seven minutes faster than my PB. I almost HDed at 43k, not least because it was my second fastest FM, but after a quick stretch, ...

Re: TimbukTOO Team Room

Wow... what happened to this team? It’s all my fault, Adam!!! Okay, not really. But I’m also one of the people that fell off the face of the [rowing] earth. I think the last time I posted, I was starting an online business. That went down the toilet together with $75,000 of my money. Very big downe...

Well, I just crept in under 4 hours at 3:59:38, but I made it!
It might have been a mistake to take it easy at the beginning, because I had to crank it up during the last hour. Oh, well...'til next year!
Thanks for your advice, all!
Woo hoo!
Congratulations!

Re: LUNA-TICS TEAM ROOM: Year-round "Looney" fun.

K2, the Spring Series VIII, which has been fun for so many of us, created a lot of extra work for you. Thank you for all that you've done to support the Luna-Tics and this challenge as well as our daily team activities. Indeed! A huge effort by Kona2 and danwho behind the scenes. Thank you for keep...

Re: New Personal Best! Brag About That New Pb!

Well, I have always said if it's your first time its a PB. Did my first ever FM today and I am pretty stoked. I have also said I have never done a workout with a pace over 2:00 so secretly I had this as a goal. First goal was to finish but wanted to really test myself and...... FM at 2:47:46.6 .......

Ah, but, unlike me, I think it's a safe bet that you have a spreadsheet for those years before you started logging meters online. :wink:
Who? Me? :lol: :lol:
(Both all my paper logs, and the spreadsheet.)

Re: LUNA-TICS TEAM ROOM: Year-round "Looney" fun.

Tom's post, where he mentioned taking up rowing as a young man of 70, made me wonder how long I've been doing this. I didn't do anything online when I started. I don't even remember being aware of that. In those days, I was more focused on running, and rowing was just a way of getting in some cross...
