Will you be joining B.O.A.R ?

A shed session may be on the socially distanced cards, but I have little interest in anything competitive. Training with JW is always fun.

I now have ergdata installed on an old phone which sits in it's C2 authentic cradle and links up to my C2 authentic polar chest band. I fear that if I keep getting C2 kit at this rate I'll be like a cross between Dolph Lundgren in R4 and Hugh Jackman in Swordfish surrounded by screens and data. It's also something else that I can do whilst listening to audible. These are all good things so I thank you for opening the door for me.Happy

Fatpete said:Considering the time of year I will take the opportunity to remind you that it is very close to the time that A Boy named Sue entered Gatlinburg, if memory serves me correctly, his throat was dry so he thought he’d stop and have himself a brew. In an old saloon on a street of mud, there at a table dealing stud, sat the dirty, mangy dog that named him Sue. He knew that snake was his old, sweet dad from a worn out picture that his mom had had, he knew that scar on his cheek and his evil eye. He was big and bent and grey and old and when he looked at him his blood ran cold. “How do you do?” he asked. “My name is Sue” he advised him “now you’re gonna die.” he predicted. He hit him hard right between the eyes, he went down but to his surprise, he came up with a knife and cut off a piece of his ear. He busted a chair right across his teeth and they crashed through the wall and into the street kickin’ and a gougin’ in the mud and the blood and the beer. He later told me that he had fought tougher men but he really couldn’t remember when as he both kicked like a mule and bit like a crocodile. He heard him laugh and then he heard him cuss and he went for his gun but he pulled his first. He stood there lookin’ at him and he saw him smile. His father then went on to explain why he had named him Sue in the first place, and whilst he had a greater understanding of the theory behind it, he remained unimpressed. He ended with a reassurance that if he himself had a son, he would call him Bill or George, indeed anything but Sue, as he still hates that name.

So no social distancing at the time then no?

I have a C2 rower now, with a card for my workouts and a HR monitor. I don't have anything else to add right now. Except thanks JTGrin

This is one of my favourite pieces of pedantry, having spent much of my childhood messing about on boats, and my love for it is not significantly diminished by the fact it turns out it's not really true.

Neither was me being in the Navy. I was just shagging a WREN.Tongue

Fatpete said:After fifteen months of ownership of my car I discovered that it has a tyre pressure gauge display hidden in the bowels of the aptly named entertainment screen. It's accurate too, but I have assured my Longacre lovely, my two and a half inch, glow in the dark, damped, complete with seventeen inch hose and alternate, rotating connexions, shimmeringly gorgeous "proper" gauge that it need have no fears, uncertainties or doubts. It is and always will remain my go to gauge of choice.

You sound like the sonar expert on the hunt for Red October. "So a $30m computer tells you that's a natural sound and you don't believe it?". He could handle the truth.Happy

EDCLARKE said:good work mate ! loving the union jack flag!

When I was in the navy it was pointed out that it can only be called a union jack if it's on a navy ship or frigatte or something, otherwise it's a union flag apparently. Still ace though.

96'' long 25'' wide
you can stand them up on their "head" 36'' x25'' x96''
or you can split them into 2 halves dead easy.
In ordinary times expect to pay at least £450 for a good used model.

Thanks JT. The splitting them looks like it would make it viable.

Had a look on fleabay and they're all 4 figures second hand, quite a bit dearer than new on the website (which is out of stock anyway).

Come on world. Get back to normal.

Jon how much space does a C2 take up? and do you reckon the price will plummet when the gyms open up and everyone's back in the pub and on xbox?

jt said:I have done lots of loading/spotting and reffing and know mistakes are possible BUT you have 3 refs 3 (at least)loaders and usually any mistake will be picked up before the lifter makes it onto the platform

You can bet your ass I would of checked and triple checked This weight!!!!!

Don't they have a 2nd panel of refs or jury as well?

I think the trouble with spotting PL comps is that it's f**king hateful and there's always a struggle to get good people to do it. They are literally dragging them off the street. I was asked to load at the Paralifting bench event run in Manchester earlier this year to which I said that I would load and reminded them of my WL background. Come the day the expectation is that I'll load, hand off and spot, world class lifters at a world class event on live stream. My stating that I haven't spotted a bench for 10 years falls on deaf ears. The competition went ahead and went well apparently, but without my assistance sadly. Whilst walked away I was scared for the loaders/ spotters who stayed (as they were on the whole a lot less experienced than me) and for the lifters who frankly deserved better. I couldn't help thinking that if they are asking me how desperate are they?
