Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Hi everyone Just a quick message 3 months postop. Been on the ergo for the first time yesterday. All hip patients are a bit nervous of this gym exercise as it can potentially lead to dislocation so not surprisingly held off doing this and concentrated on pushing on the bike instead during the time o...

Richard - well done on the 10k and halfmarathon British Records you have achieved too. Mike - great work to be so close to last years 1k TT time with all the gar...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Mike - well done on completing the Dog Days challenge Rod - brilliant August CTC. Me - scar has healed and 2 physio sessions this week. Got to practise round the house on 1 crutch and go for walks outside on 2. Leg swinging and gentle squats encouraged hanging on to the wall, (lucky we still have t...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Rod - never thought would see you sustaining 20spm but you are doing really well on it. Congratulations on a new British Record for 30 mins of 8090m, and currently top of the rankings with a 10k in 37:17.2. It looks like swopping between 125HR and 170HR is working well for you, and best wishes for ...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Thanks to everyone who is sendng their support and best wishes. It is well possible the right hip will need replacing at some time although at present the damage in it is "minor". There isnt any scheduled date for this but I would be surprised if I get past 60, having talked to others who have had s...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

I was hoping I might catch up with the posts here but it isnt likely to happen. I can see Rod and Mike have been having this forum mainly to themselves, and well done on all those achievements I havent got time to list. Me - I am joining the "Old farts mutual appreciation society", or at least it lo...

Re: Skillrow vs Concept II

Lucky the personal trainers at our gym put their oar in when it was kitted out with Technogym equipment last week - still 6 Concept2s although very tightly packed now. For me I want to race Concept2, (er - when I have had a hip replacement as currently my style and power is rather poor), so want to ...

Re: Would you do a competition just for the heck of it?

I might, particularly if there was a tourist attraction I wanted to see or some other reason for being in the area that day. Indoor owing I like to think that I am pretty good, but running is just getting round a halfmarathon although has taken me around Europe and some great weekends both sightseei...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

My absence on this page has been a bit like my rowing - fairly non existent in quantity and quality. Having gone through the euphoria of the Hamburg ergomarathon I have only just got over a nasty 2 week coughing lurgy, suffering from some weird muscle/nerve problem in my legs which is being worked o...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Where next - maybe the Italian Open 2k if they can get their online entry form to work, (seems rather last minute posting it only 5 weeks before the race). PS Dont know whether they will understand my explanation as my Italian is pretty non-existant, (can blag a bit of German when I have to but that...
