Update on the Indoor Rowers League. If I am interpreting the IRL website correctly...

We currently have 11 people signed up on the Forum Flyers team (High Flyers 2020)...of which 6 people have posted times. And with one week to go in this month’s 4 minute challenge...we are in 2nd place out of 28 teams. The first place team has 17 members of which 11 have posted times. I think only the top 8 times are counted. There does not seem to be a limit on team size, as 1st place team has 17. If interested, Lindsay posted a very nice summary back on page 202 of our message board.

IRL does not require any fee. If you're having trouble entering your results just shoot an email to the .org address (not .com). They are quick to enter your results, I had to go this route. 4 min of pain and post it! 😄

I'm hopefully going to get around to posting a time this weekend. I've been concentrating on distance pieces lately, for the fall challenge!

Thanx for the tickle, Martin. Started on the erg in June 2014. As per stats line, my annus mirabilis :lol: was 2016. Doesn’t get easier but certainly kinder to old bones than traffic jamming on a road bike.

Congrats Jack!!

And here I was celebrating my 1mil... Lol

Devon Indoor gave me an excuse to push extra hard. Yet another PB for the 5k and got my boat back in the CTC too.
I know there's always a last min lady that take that boat though, haha.

5k duty for the CTC and the Devon Indoor. 19:48.6, HR 175 at the end suggests that about the best I can do at the moment.

Well done Suzzanne, good to see the Flyers getting involved in the comps.

great to see all the new names for the Fall Challenge, lets hope they can all stay in. We are nearly top 10 in the Challenge and getting up there in the standings for the year.

if you're wondering who are some of these other names about that seem to have been around since the dinosaurs. I started rowing in 2001, and used it as back recovery whilst marathon training. Not looked back and as with most the machine gets the better of you and you just come back for more.

I'm a part time PT, the love the combination of Rowing and Kettlebells.

For some reason I still have this itch to go under 7.00, so am currently following and Eddy Fletcher plan, quite an eye opener how someone can find out your weaknesses, reckon it is going to take a year.

Over all aim, be in 75% percentile for all ranked events, should look at Rowproo again, are people using this, if not what are the alternatives, I'm a tech dinosaur so it has to be easy :)

Happy rowing people

Here's a fun bit of analysis for all of you in the Fall Team Challenge.

You can look at the same analysis for any other team here
