Re: Prizes and manipulation

For a long time I have found some of the distances erged per day to be quite suspect to me. That doesn't, however, make them untrue. Some people can do some amazing things. I have seen that some entries are actually for many people, e.g. a school entering as one 'person' with many, many rowers. I do...

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

Hi Folks About to fall off the ladder, or whatever, the gym I use is only available to me 6 days per week, not Saturdays. Unfortunately this season there are 5 Saturdays in March so I started with only 1 spare day and have burnt 2 in physio. Only managed this challenge when I had a C2 at home but n...

Re: Fishermen

No doubt a lot of you OTW rowers row on lakes/rivers/reservoirs/etc. that are shared by others. I was reminded today about fishermen in boats. I was out on Hood Canal, a huge body of water - Navy ships ply it routinely. It was pretty quiet today. I saw a few small boats out, but far away, no wakes....

Re: 2000 meter time

Sounds to me like you were possibly rowing on non C2 ergs, prior to switching gyms. I have seen similar posts to this quite a number of times before, but the person was rowing on an entirely different machine to a C2. WaterRower machines for example. They give more generous times than a C2!!! This!...

Re: Back after a long absence

Good Morning Luna-Tics, I've been off of my rowing machine and the forum for YEARS due to some family issues which took us from GA to NY where we are now, coupled with a few knee and shoulder surgeries. But I've got my rowing machine back in my life and all of my limbs are working as intended so we...

Re: Holly's journey

Hi Jill, really good to read your story too, I don't think you waffle on at all. Yesterday my team decided to have a McDonald's for lunch, where we all pool our lunch money and someone goes out and gets as much as they can from the saver menu, four weeks ago I would have been there, but the concept...

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

Hi team! I joined the team earlier this week and wanted to introduce myself. I've had my Concept2 Model D for a little over 8 years. My logbook shows lifetime meters at about 700k meters. I have logged 210k of those in the past six weeks. I loved the thing when I got it, but I stopped rowing - I'm ...

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

One of my sons was a competitive swimmer. From the time he was small, his coaches always emphasized “personal best.” As someone who is short and about to turn 77, I have no other choice—that is, to the extent I even think about all these numbers. The pace and distance are there to see if you want. ...
