Great times Lindsay & Terry. Terry currently leads this month's challenge (adjusted).

Still need another 2 entries for a full complement this month.

Good to see Rolf is still in possession of all his digits :wink:

I'm hoping to be almost over a chest infection and able to log a few more metres.

Final day March CTC entry. Lacking motivation. Tempted to bleed pace from the second rep to make it match the first but did not succumb.

Sorry folks, I failed out on the March IRL - wasn't able to get the 10k done. I simply can't sit for that long on the erg due to an unmentionable issue. I will be able to get the 500 done of course, as well as the CTC. I should be approaching the top 100 FF list soon!

It's showing on there (C2CTC) now Jack. But where are the ladies? We've now got three boats waiting to go.

Chris - we still got the 8 entries to score a full team's worth for March so don't worry about it. I was certainly glad to get the 10k done. The 500m will be a good one for you I should think.

Since I've been doing the lower rate UT2 / UT1 stuff, I've been shocked how much I've lost the ability to do 2k TT pace and rate e.g. 28spm is coming as a shock - feels like I'm having to rush the recovery to get that rate... Did a 3 x 8' / r2' AT session this evening at r26 to help get back in the groove. Heaven knows how I'm going to cope with the TR and AN sessions.

Hi,

I'm Mark, a noob to rowing and most all fitness. I'm 59, which makes me 60 next birthday and I want to hit 60 a lot fitter than I am.

Is Forum Flyers a place for me? If so, how do I join, or do I just announce myself? :D

- Mark

Welcome Mark. All you need to join is give us a brief summary of your background, contribute occasionally to this thread and throw some times at the CTC every month.

Actually I have no say in the hiring and firing process, but that would work for me! :D

Cheers
Dave
