Queensland Indoor Rowing Championships

Post by duffyoz »

I've gone and put my registration in for my first erg race!

It isn't until June 7th :lol: . Apparently I was the 2nd entrant. I have entered the 55-59 2k, 500,1000 and mixed relay which is more of a fun event at the end. It isn't a huge event in terms of numbers. Times for events, or really the start of that event, with the number of actual races, and their start time, to be decided but roughly
9.00 opening
9.10 politicians relay
9.25 1 min
10.15 2000
11.15 500
12.30 1000
1.40 100m
2.30 mixed relay

My main aim is the 2000m, so I'm glad that's first for me. As I'm a member of the club running this we get a couple of training days at the gym they will be using. Already nervous, so I put the flyer up around the house and at work so I see it all the time.

I will update here as time draws near, and the panic sets in :lol:

That's an ambitious first event - brave lady!! Not much of a gap between then but as you say, the 2000m is out of the way first.

Well the State Championships are done. I'm glad I got to compete at the NSW indoor series (zoomed in from Brisbane to Sydney) so I knew what the whole procedure was. NSW indoor series had 2 rounds and then their State Champs which unfortunately were on the same day as the Qld champs. With no competition in my age group in Qld, 3 x 1st in 2000, 1000, 500. I deliberately only did enough to ensure it was hard but not completely flatten myself. So times of 7:49.3, 3:50.0, 1:45.5.

Times from the previous NSW indoor series where there was at least other people to beat led to the following
Round 1 NSW Indoor 15 August
1000m 1st 3:43.2 (PB)
500m 1st 1:44.1 (PB)

Round 2 NSW Indoor 13 September
2000m 1st 7:41.8 Australian Record
500m 1st 1:46.4

Onwards to the Australian Indoor Champs and hopefully qualify for the virtual World Championships :D
