Re: Anyone had any PBs recently?

Well, about a week and a half left, no doubt you can do it. Good luck. [emoji6]

Re: Nonathlon 2019

Thanks Colin, Tako.
Colin, I’ve got the feeling it is only temporary that I’m faster.

Re: Nonathlon 2019

I find my 6th 900+ score this season worth an entry here... The 500m was my weakest score, but went from 894 to 903 (1:32.7 to 1:31.8). Just before the closing of the season.

Re: Indoor Rowers League 2018 / 2019

Saturday I'm going away for a week, so I wanted to give this one a try before that. Afterwards it might be a bit more difficult. Managed a SB, so I'm pretty happy with it.
1:31.8, and glad it was over of course. Especially my upper legs were...

Re: Christmas Present Ideas / Heart Rate Monitor

I recently bought myself a Polar OH1 which wears around the arm instead of the chest. Up till now I'm quite happy with it, quite comfortable.

Re: APRIL CTC - single 1500m

Another go today. Wanted to have a negative split but the beginning went (too) easy. Slowed down a little in the middle, then a bit faster again, and in the end, well, glad I made it. Bought myself a new PM5 monitor and a heart rate monitor, so now I can keep an eye on my heart rate as well again. T...

Re: APRIL CTC - single 1500m

At first I had the intention to try and make it to boat 1 today, but my legs (and the rest of my body) felt a bit tired so I decided to start a bit slower then I had in mind. I am glad I did, because it was struggling to get to the finishline. I think I will feel better later this month, so I think ...

Re: APRIL CTC - single 1500m

Wanted to do only three 6 minute intervals today and thought this might fit in well as the middle one. Divided it in 6 splits, my goal was to start at a 1:55 pace and go a second faster every split.
Well, the finish was spot on...

Re: 2019 Mud Season Madness - a review

As usually I made it but 'only' the 5K challenge. February had been a bit of an off-month, so I used the 5K's to get back in shape. Which I think paid off ok with a 10K PB and a Boat2 CTC result ((a bit off topic, but well...) only because Morten presumably is a bit out of practice, still happy I we...

Re: Indoor Rowers League 2018 / 2019

I thought I might give it a shot. Being the 1st of April, with lots of month to come, I started out really fast, and didn't succeed. Hd'd (yes, I know what it means now) and gave the CTC a try. HD'd there as well. Not being very pleased with this I decided to have another go on the 500. Started a bi...

Re: March ctc - 666/333/666/333/666/333/666/333 - 10' 30" total rest

AN ultimate attempt to stay in boat 2. I knew that I had to go a lot faster in the first intervals to really gain some time, so I devided the rest intervals evenly this time instead of shorter rest intervals in the beginning. This paid of in the beginning, but in the last two shorter intervals I los...

Great effort indeed Colin.
Personally now clinging on to Boat 2, but I'm afraid it won't last. Nor that I will be able to climb a spot.
Good luck everyone, this last weekend. I hope we can float a few more boats...

Re: Anyone had any PBs recently?

The second time this season I can post a 10K PB here. And that after all those years of rowing... And it's not because it's a poor PB I think, it seems to be a distance which is quite suitable for me. I have the stamina to keep on going here. My season's results foor the 60 minutes and half marathon...

Not much left the last K's but seeing the ETA kept me going.

Of course nothing compared to Guy (super ^O^ ) but well, compared it to my previous attempt. Same tactics as before, had the reps on my screen and my aim was to go faster each rep, in which I succeeded. I think this is my last one for this month though. Don't think I feel like doing this again. ctc ...
