Thanks Max,
yesterday i had to decided for the 5x 1.5k PetePlan intervall or a long distance row...i really like the longer stuff more and more...and maybe one day a FM - but for this i´ll need more time- so decided for a HM- which is also a ranking piece...I was a bit foolish in the first 8k and paid for it in the end...drinked to less untill 17k...next time with a hydration pack on the back...but managed a pb with a 1:21:44.7

the splits:

Given the general cardio improvements from the IP, and the recent IRL result for 6344m, my 5k time looked ripe for a test...

I thought I should be able to hold 1.57 (maybe a bit less), but I got a little giddy and went out too fast. Held on to 1.56s for the middle of the piece and sprinted for the last 1k.

To my surprise, 22s off my PB. A nice lot of nonathon points too Image

Thanks Dave. The painful realisation that my 30 minute pace is barely faster than my 10k means that's up next 😞

Woke up this morning intending to tackle the hour. Then I got delayed and found myself with only just enough time before other commitments to do an hour of rowing in total. So I set the pace boat at a rather hopeful 2.02 and paddled a few minutes warm up.

That obviously left me quite adrift of target by 30 minutes. By 20 minutes remaining, I'd given up on the pace boat so switched to a minute at 1.55/a minute at 2.06 for a bit of variety, and quite quickly the pace boat fell away.

Rather surprised to see an improvement of 156m. And some handy nonathon points.

That's a very healthy improvement for the hour of power, well done Ian! Well deserved nonathlon points, too!

Thanks both - I'm really not looking forward to any attempt to improve the 2km time though (even though the IP targets that specifically....).

Thanks for sparing my dignity. Does that mean you will be going for the FM?

More like sparing my lungs.

I've no immediate plans for a fm, though I do actually enjoy a them more than a 2k.....
