Yes, after completing the challenge I can see where I may have lost small bits of time. I tried rolling starts, but was not up to speed so probably lost a stroke worth of time/energy there. I did get off to rest and stretch after 6 rounds and strapped about 30 seconds out. I think at this point at my current fitness I may be able to keep a 1:45 pace, but not sure much better. It will take some time as I have just been pounding out meters like I was jogging for a while. I need to get back in sprint cardio shape to go much lower. Are you able to repeat and repost results during a challenge-period if you can improve a result?

Thanks for the support and motivation,

Yes, as often as you want to do it. And not just improvements I believe, a later entry will ALWAYS overwrite an earlier one, which some have used when they make a mistake/typo first time. Obviously you don't have to post it!

Ok, thanks. If I can muster the energy, I may try it again this weekend and see if I can improve my pace.

You're braver than me!

I did it, but I'm not going in for another try. :D I went as hard as I could and don't think I could do better. I figure it's best if I stay able to row, LOL! I'm doing the Concept 2 Valentine's challenge this week.

A reminder that today (Feb 14) is the annual Carole McNally Memorial Row on the CTC site. It's a one-day 1402m row to commemorate the sudden passing of a rowing legend. The 'regular' Feb 2020 CTC challenge will be back up after today's memorial ends.

Here's a link to her obituary: https://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk/n ... er-battle/

Well, I thought I had more in me for this challenge, but could only muster a minor increase 3289>3298. Progress, but just did not have it in me the last 15 seconds through the middle rounds. Back to work!

You need at least five rowers to float a boat in the CTC. If you're a lone rower without a team and not planning to solicit all the rowers you know to join, then join the "Independents" team.
