Re: May CTC - 3 x 1k / 5 min rest

Great that you are exercising, but be careful, particularly if you are ignoring physio!

Re: May CTC - 3 x 1k / 5 min rest

I just gave this a go. I was trying to put some distance between myself and Tako and almost bit off more than I could chew, slowing considerably in the last interval, but good enough for position 1 in boat 1 for now. My overall pace was 1:42.8, a bit faster than my 2k personal best of 1:43.2 from la...

I like your style, Dave. That sounds like my kind of birthday, well, assuming the trip to the doctor's was short and benign.

Re: May CTC - 3 x 1k / 5 min rest

Did my first attempt today! Initial goal was to take it easy, but that turned out to be difficult due to an inner urge to go faster after the first 1k https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190503/33f6a2dc797a28fe8a19d4a448091aff.jpg My PB pace for the 2k is 1:43.4, so not sure what to expect for futur...

Re: 2018/19 Summary and Aspirations for 2019/20

Thanks for getting this started, Dave. I have not erged regularly since 2006 (when I erged about 2.6 million meters as a 24 year old), with a few meters here and there, and a season of about 200k in 2014 or so. I struggled with some hip injuries in 2007/8, a broken foot in 2009/10, broken ribs twice...

Re: APRIL CTC - single 1500m

Sorry about the FnD, Guy. It happens to all of us. Doing a 500 in the same session sounds like the sort of foolery I would try. I also see a strong effort from Morten was just posted. Well done! 3 rowers under 5:05 in boat I and six boats afloat! Claudius: challenge accepted. Cheers, Colin PS I don'...

Took another 2.4 seconds off the 1K PB today! Tako, how's the 30' coming?

Re: APRIL CTC - single 1500m

OK Tako, the gauntlet has been thrown. 5:05.4 @ 1:41.8. Looking forward to seeing what you, Claudius, Guy, Max, etc throw at this in the next week.

Re: Anyone had any PBs recently?

Go for it, Tako! If you hit 8100 I might need to take another crack at it! I checked off the 6K today. I was aiming for 22:00 or under and this pace is a littler slower than my 2K, 5K, and 30' would predict, but it's a new PB all the same. I am not particularly well rested, so this leaves me some ro...

Re: Anyone had any PBs recently?

I hauled in 31 meters on my 30' PB for 8089. I started my sprint too soon and faded ... twice, in the last 2.5 minutes, so I think 8100 is within reach with a better finish. This distance was the most painful so far. It's just a brutal combination of length and pace. Cheers, Colin https://i.imgur.co...

Thanks, Tako! Don't be so modest, you are faster than I am in the short pieces by quite a bit!

I'm getting closer to knocking off all my old PBs by the end of April! I took 7.7 seconds off my 10k for a 37:20.4.

Re: Anyone had any PBs recently?

After 2 consecutive days of HDing around 1000 meters I got a good 2K time, knocking .7 seconds off my best and 7 seconds off my season's best. Now I have all those middle distance ones left to go from 6K to 10K. The 500m seems out of reach right now. Cheers, Colin https://i.imgur.com/9DNt5OMl.png

Re: Anyone had any PBs recently?

Thanks Max. I might like 500m even less, but at least it's over faster. Both stink. Went back to long distance today and knocked a 60' PB off the list too!

Sprints are not my strength, but I had a crack at the 1k yesterday and today and scratched out a PB by .1 seconds. Wooh hoo!
