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

2k Test today. Main goal. 7:29 Dream goal. 7:25 Result 7:19 It hurt, a lot. I paced it really well. I emptied the tank over the last 500 and the last 300 were strong but very, very hard. I could not have gone faster today. VERY chuffed with that. Woo Hoo! Congratulations - not just beating your mai...

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

I finally did it. Well, two things. First: I joined the Million Meter Club yesterday. Second: I finished my first challenge earlier today. It's taken me a long time to really get hooked on rowing, but I'm glad it finally happened. I've rowed more meters in the last 10 weeks than the previous nine y...

Re: Thor Update

Hey guys. Well I had a good run in March. I set two new world records for the visually Impaired over 50 category. I placed third in the world sprint so a medal is on its way and I got the first 17 days of the Mud in too. Then it happened. After a nice 10 to 15 minute warmup I did a 4X500M rest 1 mi...

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...
