New attempt today. Standard goal, faster then the same rep of last time. Managed that except for the last one, went a bit too enthusiastic back and hurt my lower back, had to slow down a bit. Also the only rep in this pyramid which was slower then the first half.
My back still hurts quite a bit so this might possibly be the last one of the month. Wonder how it feels tomorrow.

@Wolfie: a new goal for you :fswink: Pretty sure hyou can make it.

Great improvement Fred =D> =D> I hope the back heals up quickly

I finally plucked up the courage to try this one today though even before starting I was wondering when would be a reasonable point to bale out? As it was, I think I paced it just right because the pain didn't really kick in until halfway through the second 400m. Surprisingly pleased with the result... not convinced I'll be trying this one again :shock:

Result: 2500m, 8:07.6, 1:37.5, 36

Very well done Fred, you are a big powerful man so those scores are there if your back stays strong.
0.4s overall :mrgreen: very tempting, but I'll have to see if I can fit it in ... 8-[

Well done Mat =D>
I should be able to nudge my friend James to have a go and push me out of boat 1.
