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

6km TT today. Was meant to be a rest day particularly after the 30R20 yesterday but i had no aches or pains so thought why not 24 second PB in the end and no real hiccups. Enjoying this vein of form whilst it lasts. The overall average is also better than my current 5km PB so that will need to be a...

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

Feeling quite good about myself decided to do a 15k this morning and managed a new PB; :D 15k 2:11.9/500 s/m 19 D/F 122 just got into a nice rhythm during the the first 1000 and kept it up doing negative splits every 3k. Was strapless and had foot plates as low as they good go which seemed to help....

Re: My feet are huge- Model B with Flexfoot

I've picked up a model B that already has the flexfoot kit installed on Feb 1. Problem is, I wear a size 14 or 15 show and it's a major pain in the butt to get my feet in and out of the flexfoot. The heel of my shoe gets really stuck every time. I am wondering if there is a better idea for locking ...

Re: Shoulder Surgery Questions

I just had rotator cuff tear (supraspinatus tendon) repair and bicep tenodesis last week. I've watched YouTube videos, read lots of articles, etc. but since this is my first (and hopefully, last) such experience, I really have no idea if what I'm feeling is "normal". This post is a request for thos...

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

Hi everyone - just wanted to let you know about a major milestone for me! Yesterday when I stood on the scale I discovered that my BMI had dropped below 30 for the first time in at least 15 years! This means that I am no longer obese - when I started rowing a few months ago I was "Class 2" obese. N...

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

I had my first (and I daresay, only) go at a half marathon today. My target was 1:49/500m pace, for around 1.16:30 (accounting for a little sprint at the end). My plan was gentle negative splitting all the way to the end. This went to plan, for the most part, but then as the finish line approached,...

Re: What is your drive time?

As I peer at the flattented shape of my force curve, it occurs to me that drive time likely plays a role. I'm curious about everyone's drive time. Please also list your height as this could influence drive time. My average drive time is 0.75 seconds and I am 6ft tall. With all the COVID issues, I n...

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

60’ row session on the plan so thought I’d pick off some ‘low hanging fruit’ and crack the 16k in an hour - and what’s an extra 93m to make it 10 miles? Made it harder for myself at the end by a little complacency and doing the 4th 12 mins at 20 SPM with 1:52.5 average. Meant my last 12 mins was ma...

This is possibly my proudest PB, as I was only hoping for getting 1:18.00, and in my wildest dreams I was hoping for 1:17.30. Eyes closed for the vast majority of it, so I didn'...
