I just got halfway with number 15. After 2 days of struggling with back after 3k this one felt ok, so went for an overall PB. Got it, 1:31:46.6, 9Secs faster than previous and 1min52secs than CBC PB. Well chuffed.

Thanks Juergie. What time do you start yours in the morning as you always have it done it seems before I get to work. Also if you are getting up early are you doing it on an empty stomach or eating first, and if you are eating do you leave it a bit to go down? Sorry for all the questions, still learning tips from all you guys and gals.

I get up at 4am, take a bite from the flapjack (450 calories per 100g, I actually order them from the UK) on my nightstand, get dressed and row. I eat a little something because I got a bit nauseous towards the end of the first HM I did. When I‘m only rowing one hour in the morning, I don‘t eat anything before. Takes a little bit of getting used to, though.

Hi, my name is Juergen and I'm a rowaholic. I'm a HM junkie. In the last 30 days I did 30 HM. Can't go longer than 24 hours without a fix. I thought, I have it under control and can stop whenever I want to. But I can't. Have to go on.
