  • Progress logged between Tue 29 Jan 06:00 GMT and Wed 30 Jan 06:00 GMT.
  • Fighting spirit is a measure of your proportional rate of ascent of the rankings. 100% means you've maintained your place in the overall rankings. If you were ranked at 200, and climbed to place 180 in the 2 days since you last logged any distance, your Fighting spirit would be ((200-180)/(200x2) + 1) x 100 = 105%. Similarly, if you were ranked at 1000 and climbed to place 950 in one day, your Fighting spirit would also be 105%.
  • A '/' means yesterday's logged distance has been split between the number of days since you last logged any metres (or day 14, when these stats were started.)


Well done to all the above for pushing TIMBUK2 onwards.

Nathaniel

Good Morning to a GREAT Team,
Thanks to all who have made this such a successful JVC08.
Props to PJM for the tireless motivation all month. Congrats on 11mil.
Special thanks to Nathaniel for the daily stats.
And thanks to all of you whose enthusiasm has inspired me to row twice the number of meters I set out to do.

Hmm - its getting interesting! Looks like some production is required this evening. Last night's fare was a 10K and 4x2,000 power 10's - stimulating. For me, Saturday is Pittsburgh Indoor Rowing Championships (Pittsburgh is one of the top 4 Crash B qualifying events - not that I'm that good, just crazy enough to try) - most likely I will repeat last night's workout as final prep and as a way to log some decent meters for Timbuk2 - will have to to row long but easy on Thursday to give the bod a few days to recharge before Saturday.

Pat looked up my main sport of Dragon Boat Racing and suggested I mention it in this forum as it might be of interest to members of the team not familiar with it. I got into the world of C2 as off-season training but didn't anticipate that I'd get hooked on it! Dragon Boating is a 2300 year old sport that originated in China and is the fastest growing paddling sport internationally - very big in Canada- growing in the US - will be new in the coming Olympics. I belong to two teams: Steel City Dragons (Festival Racing competition team) and Team Pittsburgh (Sport Racing competition team). For anyone interested - You Tube has some great videos of Dragon Boat competition: its basically a speed and power sport. Our boats are about 46 feet long with a dragon head and tail at the ends - 20 paddlers, a cox who beats a big drum,and a steersperson who keeps us on course and controls the boat. Races are 500m, qualifiers are 250m, occasionally races include a 2,000m event and are flat-out power, usually lasting only a little over 2 minutes for the 500m in Sport Racing Class. Stroke rates in our boat range from a slow 60spm to about 95 spm or even more. A dragon boat paddle is a little like a canoe paddle - the stroke is all about core drive with alot of back and shoulder power initially - but most of the power comes from the core. The boat seats do not move - because of the torque , "Dragon Butt" (that is spelled b-l-i-s-t-e-r) is a fairly frequent anatomical consequence of the sport. I figure that our boat fully loaded weighs about 3,500 to 3,800 pounds. We think of it as an ultimate team sport: 20 paddlers have to be in perfect synchronization - no heroes - just one living, (fire) breathing unit. Its immense fun (if you look closely in my picture, there's a Dragon Boat in the distant background - it was taken at a Fall competition in Oakville Ontario. So, that's my other paddling passion. As an aside, I got my team to take the boat out for a 50k paddling event at the end of our 2007 season - we may even do it as a challenge next fall as there are only a few teams that have done this kind of distance in a Dragon Boat competitively. There are always new goals to go for! We'll put the boats back in the water in late March then 6 to 8 hrs a week on the water training and, yes, more time on my C2!

Well, I'll miss JVC when we're done - hopefully Timbuk2 will reassemble for another challenge event - this is a great team. It's been a lot of fun. I'm also very pleased to be a new member of Timbuktu and look forward to many, many, more meters and membership in a great team! Thanks all.

Row, Row, Row - GO,GO,GO Timbuk2 !!!

Bill

To MY CREW:
We have one full day left to row as a team.I want you to know what an honor and pleasure it has been to be on the same team as all of you.We began as a 13 crew boat and grew to 65.The enthusiasm spread and the excitement along with it.This is my 3rd JVC and it has been the best yet.We have been together through sprained ankles, bad backs, the flu, colds,trips out of town, you name it..we have rowed together through it.Snow storms and heat waves( here in Florida).No one ever gave up and each of you supported the other.I take everything I do very seriously and give it my all.My daily posts were sometimes silly but they seemed to fit my moods and my intent for the day.The graphics caught on and I looked forward to all the ones that you sent back as a reply.I have never met any of you but feel like I know each one of you.What did we do before computers and e-mail technology.I am saddened that this challenge is over but it will not be over if I can help it.We will stay as a challenge force and a new virtual boat if it is meant to be.Before I start to cry..a female thing B) ..
I will end this sappy post.But this has been an awesome month and all of you deserve huge kudos and as a wise man always says..PROPS to you!!!

Hooray for Captain Pat and the whole Timbuk2 crew! And here's to Timbuk2, Timbuktu, and (maybe) Timbuktoo too - and the whole fleet if we become one.
Think Big! Row Big!
