Thanks Dave and Peter!

If I would have gone for a 2:12ish pace I probably would have HDed somewhere in the middle :-)
Well, I have hopefully many years left where I could improve my time, but not sure I will feel the desire though :-)

Without others and competition I wouldn't, so thanks to all of you in the community for keeping me going! :fssmile:

5x2k rate ladder. Probably started too slowly as I had WAY too much energy left in the final rep Image

Felton, That last 2k is impressive, and quite a bit faster than your SB?

Hello,

the Nonathlon motivates me to do another ranking piece: today 6k unrestricted all-out-effort, hit hfmax 180/min in the final sprint :twisted: ...a pb :wink:

Thanks Tako and Max !,

and the next ranking piece which had to be optimized: 500m
The attachment 500m.JPG is no longer available
and tried this...but HDing...cant belief that one 500m piece could be that exhausting !

This is the 5th time in September that I've tried to beat my best 30r20 distance which was set in May. Improvement of 23m to 7,874m @1:54.3 :D

Thought I'd have a crack at the 30r20 today, not a session I've done too many times. Probably started a little too enthusiastically but settled into a decent rhythm after I realised that 8k was out of the question Image SB.
