Accidentally set a new 2K PB today of 7:33.4, a betterment of 3.7 seconds over my 2016/17 season time. See the October CTC thread for the story... :D

This time was no accident - After several weeks of building up to it along with a handful of failed attempts, I finally managed to achieve a PB in the elusive 10K today. Finished nearly 8 seconds faster than my previous best with a 39:49.5.

With this row, this is officially my "Season of PB's" as I've managed to PB every row this season that I track. I plan to also PB the 1 Min row for the IRL this month, but I hate it so much that I don't consider it a real row... :D :D

This doesn't mean I won't try again next season (or try to improve yet this season), but I've got to think this has been a banner rowing year for me!

Thanks, guys! I appreciate the support and the ongoing inspiration you all (and all the Free Spirits) provide year in and year out. The FS's have done some amazing things over the years.

Great pacing Ian - and assuming it's a PB (it's on the PB thread) - as you say, it's a cracking start to a Monday =D> =D>

Thanks all - I've some crazy ideas to get closer to 1:20 but only when I've had too much coffee.

If that’s 2k+5 that must put your 2k pace around 1:53.x so I guess that with a fair wind and a strong finish 7:12??

I'm clearly far too easily led. Six second off my previous PB.

I was just paddling initially, then thought I'd have a go at a negative split. No prizes for guessing when I though a decent time was on the cards :lol:
