Nice work Peter given you've mostly been OTW and not so much OTE!
Indeed, so far this season it has been 450km on the erg and 734km on the water :shock:

New SB for my 1k (done for the Lightweights challenge) by a whole 0.1s !! :-) Gets me a whole Nonathlon point too. By default it's a 3 year SB as my previous SB was one already. Died totally in the last 50m and finished with arms only for the last 3~4 strokes so maybe there's another 0.5~1.0s in there if I can actually still have functioning legs through to the end.

Well done Dave. That's a lot of pain for 1 Nonathlon point!

Given my latest pace for the IRL's 6344 of 1:54.9 was a tenth faster than my current 5k SB (19:10.3/1:55.0) I decided to have a go at my 5k last night. Plan was to start around 1:55 for the first half and then get going in the second half. This is how it went:

A 1:55 pace felt too easy from the start so I went a bit quicker than planned in the first 2k. In the second 2k I was able to go a second quicker in pace and still have something left for a fast final 1k. Overall really happy with my new SB by exactly 16 seconds which earned me 11 shiny noanthlon points. I guess the 6k is next on the list :shock:
